Important Place of Service Information for Physician/Practitioner Who is Also a Supplier

If you are a physician/practitioner who is also a supplier, it is important to remember that place of service (POS) is different for an office visit versus providing an item for use in the home. When submitting claims for DME items to use in the home, POS is 12. Denials for these types of claims are denied for wrong POS and require rework through the self-service reopening function on the Noridian Medicare Portal. So, save time and money by billing with the correct POS on the initial claim filing.
