On August 6, 2015, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proclaimed an alteration to the Medicare Claims Processing Manual
that will take effect January 1, 2016
. The alteration amends the present Place of Service (POS) code set by inserting a new POS code 19 for “Off Campus-Outpatient Hospital” and altering POS code 22 from “Outpatient Hospital” to “On Campus-Outpatient Hospital”.
Please make updates to any default values and begin employing the new/updated codes after
the effective day of January 1, 2016
Please call CMS with any queries or for further info on the amended use of these codes.
