Ensure You Are Billing the Proper Place of Service (POS) Codes

The AAPC's Coding Edge Magazine published "Keep Out of Hot Water with Proper POS", an informative article regarding proper Place of Service (POS) coding.

It's important to note that the Office of Inspector General (OIG) has been conducting audits and the proper POS codes are becoming more frequent in the errors they are reviewing.

The article is broken down into the following topics:
  • How POS Affects Payment
  • Frequent Errors Raise OIG's Ire
  • How to Avoid POS Problems
  • Clear Guidance on POS Definitions
This article also has an informative list of settings where physician's services are paid at the facility rate.
