Thread: Assisted living E&M codes

    Default Assisted living E&M codes

    AAPC: Back to School
    I work in family practice where my doctors see patients at assisted living facilities. If the patient comes into the facility clinic to be seen, do we bill a regular office E&M (99212-99215) with place of service 11 or do the assisted living E&M's apply with POS 13?

    Thank you

    The place of service would be 13 if the doctor physically goes to the facility to see the patient.

    Talking Audit Tool

    Does anyone know of an audit tool for ALF codes?
