    Default Need help - nursing home visit

    AAPC: Back to School
    We have a patient who came to the doctor's office for cryotherapy and also had their annual nursing home assessment done. Can we bill a 99318 (annual nursing home assessment) in the doctor's office setting or do we need to bill a 99214 since it is done in the office. Need help as the billers want to bill a 99214 and I'm not sure that is correct. Thanks.

    In my opinion since the place of service is the physician's office I would say the office e/m level would need to be billed.
