Q: Where do I enter the place of service (POS) code on my claim?
A: The POS code should be entered in the 2400 Place of Service Code loop (segment SV105) of the 837P electronic claim (Item 24B on the CMS-1500 paper claim form).
It is important to ensure you bill the appropriate POS code on all claims to avoid potential overpayments. It is recommended you review your claims and systems for proper billing of the place of service codes.
• If you use an outside billing agency or clearinghouse, make sure they are billing all your claims with the correct place of service code. It is your responsibility to ensure your claims are billed correctly.
