In this episode Paula Digby answers questions regarding the insertion of an antibiotic spacer; whether “normal” coding rules apply to both the UB-04 and the IRF-PAI for reporting possible or probable diagnoses, whether a pre-admission assessment must be repeated by the physician when several days pass after the initial completion, and reporting of 0238T, which is a non-covered service.

Today’s winner of the official Coffee with the Coder® Mug is Barbara from North Carolina!

The “mug shot” here is of Trish Randall, our Audio Editor.
