Recently, our practice has experienced an issue with one insurance company (a Medicare Advantage payer) recouping cataract post-op payments. The reason provided is that the place of service is incorrect. We always bill our post-ops with POS 11 and have had no problems. The service is taking place in our office, so this seems appropriate. I have searched for CMS documentation that addresses place of service for post-ops, but have been unable to locate anything useful. Am I correct in billing the post-op with POS 11? Are there any documents that I may be able to submit with an appeal that may help our argument? Any help is appreciated.

Yes, you should submit the letter of explanation and supporting medical records indicating that post op care was provided in subsequent office visits. Thanks !!
