    I am new to this and would apprecite any help anyone can give me. Can you charge for a hospital discharge and admission to skilled care for the same DOS. I didn't think we could but my office manager says that in the past we have gotten paid for both by Medicare. Thanks for your help.

    Yes you can. You need mod -25 on hospital discharge and make sure you are using the correct place of service codes for each.
