    Question 99220 & 99217 - In the 3 mos I have been with this IM

    AAPC: Back to School
    In the 3 mos I have been with this IM group, each physician has billed a 99220/99217 on a patient that they designated/admitted to observation on one day and actually discharged on the next day. I have had several insurance companies deny these charges due to invalid Place Of Service. This isn't my first pony ride, but apparently I'm missing something! What is the Place of Service that should be billed with these procedure codes?

    Try outpatient..I code for emergency room physicians and this is what we are told to do.
