    thank you
    If the facility is considered an acute care hospital, it is POS 21 for Inpatient hospital "A facility, other than psychiatric, that primarily provides diagnostic, therapeutic (both surgical and non-surgical), and rehabilitation services by, or under, the supervision of physicians to patients admitted for a variety of medical conditions". You would use the appropriate E/M codes for Inital or Subsequent Inpatient care.
