I need to know how to code for medical care given at an Adult Day Care Center. My provider was asked to provide care to patients at a center and we need to understand how this should be billed

The best choice probably would be one of the “office or other outpatient services” codes (99201-99215). People tend to think of these codes as officevisit codes only. However, according to CPT, you may use these codes to report E/M services provided “in an outpatient or other ambulatory facility.” An adult day-care center would seem to fit this description.

Thank you that is what I thought would be correct. What place of service code should I use?
