Place of Service

Lori Posted Wed 06th of March, 2019 16:22:24 PM
What place of service do I use for an out patient mental health facility that is not a Drs office, it is an out patient mental health facility. They told me I can not use place of service 11 because it is not a Drs office. It is billed on a UB4 form. Thank You

If your out-patient mental health facility is not a doctor's office, then it can be billed under community mental health center. Place of service (POS) 53 is for Community Mental Health Center, this is the POS facility that provides the outpatient services, including specialized outpatient services for children, the elderly, individuals who are chronically ill, and residents of the CMHC's mental health services area who have been discharged from inpatient treatment at a mental health facility; 24 hour a day emergency care services; day treatment, other partial hospitalization services, or psychosocial rehabilitation services; screening for patients being considered for admission to State mental health facilities to determine the appropriateness of such admission; and consultation and education services. It is suggested to check the status of your facility for Community Mental Health Center.

Hope this helps!
