CPT code for TCU

  1. #1
    Default CPT code for TCU
    Medical Coding Books
    Pt. is d/c'd from inpt status-99238, and readmitted to the TCU unit inside the same hospital. Would you use the 99304-99318 codes, or continue with the inpt codes-99221? She was given a new admit date and admission # by the hospital. Our billing system has it's own place of service code for TCU.

    Thanks for your help.

    Use 99304 - 99318. And of course the SNF/TCU POS.
