POS for Long Term Care

  1. #1
    Default POS for Long Term Care
    Medical Coding Books
    I need assistance with this one, I don't code too often for Long Term Care -- what would the POS be 13 or 33?

    It really depends on the patient's needs...

    33 does not include a medical component

    13 includes some health care and other services
