Where would I put the admit date on a hcfa 1500 for SNF pos 31

All of the PM software I use has an area where you enter the admit date for hospitalization, be it SNF, or inpatient at a hospital, and that area populates box 18 on the CMS form, if we were to print the claims.

We put it there as well.  There is no box specifically for SNF.
