Hello, I am starting to bill for professional services for providers seeing patients in a hospital long term care unit; the hospital has some beds that are swing beds. What is the difference in how these daily or monthly visits should be coded. Thank you

Thank you for your question
Patients under swing beds should be coded with appropriate discharge summary code (99238-99239) along with the appropriate nursing facility code billed as per the E&M level.
Hope that helps!
