    I believe it's your CPT code. Per Medicare....In the nursing facility setting, the consulting physician or qualified NPP shall use the appropriate Initial Inpatient Consultation codes (99251 – 99255) for the initial consultation service.

    CPT also states to report 99251-99255 for Nursing Facilities
