    Default Need help, pt in Assisted Living Center

    AAPC: Back to School
    We have a doc that has started going to an Assisted Living Center and seeing patients there. She came back and told me that there were patients who "chose" to live there. They are not there due to Medical Necessity. So my question is, on the patients who chose to live there, would that be billed the same as if the doc went to the patients house, or should it be billed as a visit done in an Assisted Living Center with a POS code 13? Thanks for your input.

    It should be billed as a visit done at Assisted Living Center with the POS 13. You're right on that. Thank you. Hope I help you with this one.

    That's what I thought but sometimes its good to get a "second opinion". Thank you.
