Hello,
Thank you for your reply. I am not familiar with inpatient rehab billing. I have experience with Outpatient Physical Therapy Billing and podiatry. So, any information will be much appreciated. My software can handle inpatient billing but I have never done it.
Thanks!

Inpatient billing is completely different than professional billing.  There are a lot of different fields on the UB04.  I'm not sure where to start.  Too much info to put into a post.  The biggest tips I can give our the Type of Bill is important and there are rev codes instead of CPT codes.  Hopefully since your software is capable of the inpatient billing, it will guide you thru the steps.

Are you familiar with the UB04 at all?  Maybe as you start going through it you will have more specific questions.  I really don't mind helping at all, just not sure what to tell you in this first "introductory" post.   ;D
