    Red face Observation place of service

    AAPC: Back to School
    Do I use a 22 Outpatient for place of service in hospital if the patient was admitted as observation only?

    I find a number of references out there that do say to use a POS 22 for observation. If you google "place of service" and observation you'll pull up a bunch of them.
