We billed medicare G0180 & G0179 with POS 33. It was denied due to procedure code/bill type is inconsistent with the place of service. What should the POS be ??

Per the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Transmittal 2407, the place of service (POS) code for all physicians paid under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MFPS) must match the setting in which the beneficiary receives the face-to-face service. Billable, non face-to-face services (such as when a physician interprets diagnostic test results) are billed to the POS in which the beneficiary received the technical portion of the service.
