    Smile Urgent Care - 99051

    AAPC: Back to School
    In an Urgent Care setting, place of service 20, can we bill the 99051 as well as the E/M and the S9088?

    Thank You!

    99051 has to have place of service 11 - it says "Services provided in the office during..."

    S9088 is for services provided in an urgent care setting, so that would be acceptable. As far as I know, neither one of them pays all that much - S9088 isn't covered by hardly anyone anymore. Some BCBS plans still cover 99051 - but it definitely has to be POS 11, not 20. Hope that helps!
