re: TCM

The place of service reported on the claim should correspond to
the place of service of the required face-to-face visit.

re: TCM

You will need to use inpatient codes to go with inpatient place of service. (POS).

Are you using the correct date of service?

re: TCM

The TCM's DOS is the 30th day from the date of discharge because this code is for the evaluation and management of the patient's care for the next 30 days after discharge. Even though the face to face visit was a few days after the discharge. Contact from the patient has to be initiated within the first 2 days of discharge AND the face to face visit is within the 14 calendar days of the discharge. Bill the TCM CPT® code based on the days seen from discharge. Our TCMs are done in office so will be POS 11. Your DOS for the TCM has to correspond with the 30th calendar day from the date of discharge.
