House calls and Medicare
« on: February 28, 2011, 02:00:36 PM »
I am having a hard time getting Medicare to pay for a house visit.  Using code 99334.  Place of service 12.  Any suggestions?

Is it a house visit, or an assisted facility?  The code you use, 99334 is for a rest home, so wouldn't be place of service 12. If it's the patient's home, you would use 99341 for new patient, 99347 for established.
