    Default Place of Service 23 with 99236

    AAPC: Back to School

    I'm trying to figure out if POS 23 is appropriate to bill with cpt 99236. I have researched this code using many different website and I find the information leads to any of the following: POS 21,22, or 23. I'd like to be sure if this is correct. Can anyone help?

    A NY state medicaid patient was seen by a ER physician who is billing for 99236 along with place of service 23.

    Thank you!

    I have a question in the same area, but different circumstance. My doctors billing is not dictated by the hospital. When one of our doctors was on call, the ER contacted him over the phone & our doctor ordered admission as out-pt to the hospital, did not see her face-to-face till later then same day when he discharged her. Would this be billable only as an Observation Care Discharge?? 99217 ??
