You cannot bill it as inpatient if you in fact performed the procedure outpatient. So the question is was hte patient admitted as an inpatient? If they were not admitted prior to the procedure being performed then you may not use an inpatient POS. You can however appeal and explain why the procedure was performed outpatient instead of inpatient, or you can appeal and show the admit record which shows the hospital billed incorrectly.
