Hi,

The exact answer would depend upon certain specific factors. To determine the correct POS for a particular patient, we must know how the nursing facility classifies that patient, i.e., as SNF or long-term. We can use the CPT nursing facility codes under POS 32 only if the patient is not having Part A SNF benefits or if he is in a NF. Also, one can only bill under POS 32 (NF) if the patient is given skilled nursing care and services for the rehabilitation of injuries, disabilities, or sickness, or if the patient receives the health care services on a regular basis, above the level of custodial care to individuals who are not mentally retarded. 

Thank you.
