    Default Inpatient Rehab E&Ms

    AAPC: Back to School
    My doctors see patients at an inpatient rehab facility and we are not sure what E&M codes are appropriate for these services. I was using 99221-99233 with POS as 22, is this correct? Thanks in advance for you help.

    Your procedure codes are correct (99221-99233), but the POS code for IP Rehab is 61. If you file with POS 22 (outpatient), your claims will deny as procedure code not consistent with the place of service.

    I hope this helps!
