Place of service

Marilyn Posted Sun 18th of September, 2016 23:00:34 PM
What is the "place of service" when billing for "98968"?
SuperCoder Answered Mon 19th of September, 2016 08:27:34 AM

Hi, 

There can be two scenarios:

1) The patient is at Home(98968 being a telephonic code) -- POS 12 will be used.

2) The pos is Other POS -- POS 99 will be used.

Hope this helps!

So the place of service will be the patient's address?

The place of service will be the patient's address only if the service is rendered at patient's house.

I am revisiting this question. When using "98968" and the provider made the phone call from the office and the patient was at home...use pos "12" and the patient's address?
