SNF Medicare Part B Admit Date?

    Smile SNF Medicare Part B Admit Date?
    Medical Coding Books
    We have a provider seeing a patient at a SNF and debriding nails, CPT 11721. I am having a hard time finding specific documentation on the CMS site regarding billing for SNF for Medicare part B.

    We are billing Part B Medicare and using location 32, is this correct?
    Does Medicare require an admission date in order to process our claim?

    Thanks for the help.
