Thread: Assisted Living Facility

    Default Assisted Living Facility

    AAPC: Back to School
    How should a patient being seen at an assisted living facility be categorized. When selected the appropriate therapy code; the difference in coding is.

    ;in an office or outpatient facility


    ;in an inpatient hospital, partial hospital or residential care setting.

    "Residential care setting" seems to best fit the facility.

    If the patient lives in their own apt and is seen there, that would be a home visit.
