I was wondering if anyone can answer this question I am fairly new to Nursing Home Billing/Coding If a patient is discharged from the nursing home and 2 weeks later is readmitted to the nursing home what code would you use to bill the first date of readmission. We were told 99304 because it is a new admission and it appears that goes along with Medicare guidelines but can get confusing.
