What is the correct place of service code to use for a long term acute care facility. There is one for SNF, for inpatient and outpatient, etc, but nothing listed specically for LTAC facilities.

Prefer using 33-A facility which provides room, board and other personal assistance services, generally on a long-term basis, and which does not include a medical component.
