One Day IP Stays
« on: July 17, 2012, 10:15:15 AM »
I was wondering how everyone else out there defines One Day IP Stays. We define them as:

1. TOB = 111
2. LOS = 1 or LOS = 0
3. DRG = Must be coded.
4. Room Charge = At least one room charge.

I would like to get anyone else's thoughts as well as if anyone has any scenarios where they have a Ins. Payer that sets a guideline on how they define a ODS and you have to meet that guideline in order to get the actual contracted rate for a ODS. Thanks.

I'm not sure if you are asking about the criteria to determine if it constitutes an inpatient stay or if you are just asking on the coding?
