DC from Acute/ Admit to SNF same day

  1. Default DC from Acute/ Admit to SNF same day
    Medical Coding Books
    When a patient was discharged from Acute care and admitted to SNF (same hospital), I always billed both 99238/9 with a 25 modifier and then the SNF admit.

    I was looking for supporting documentation and I found it just after submitting this!
    IOM Manulal letter D

    Thank you,
