POS - Please advise

    Default POS - Please advise
    Medical Coding Books
    Patient admitted (inpatient) on 07/01/2009 & discharged 07/07/2009. An EEG is performed on 07/07/2009, and the interpretation is performed on 07/08/2009. What about the POS, inpatient or outpatient for billing the interpretation?

    You would bill for what was done.

    If your provider read it on 7/8/09 in his office and dictated the report from there that is what you would bill. 7/8/09 pos 11.

    Your documentation has to support what you did.

    Your documentation will not support 7/7/09 pos 21 if it didn't happen then and there.

    The provider read it in the hospital, so will it be outpatient or inpatient?
    Does the same apply to radiology readings?
