PENNSYLVANIA MEDICAID OBSERVATION BILLING

Kelly Posted Wed 09th of May, 2012 22:05:50 PM

What code series can we bill an admission and also a discharge on a Pennsylvania Medicaid patient that is considered observation status? PA Medicaid does not have observation codes on their fee schedule. Any help is much appreciated.

I think you should use outpatient office visit codes (99201-99215) since observation unit is considered outpatient.
