We sometimes receive diagnosis codes that are unlikely, based on the place of service. These codes represent conditions that are of such severity that they usually require hospitalization. We've prepared several short handouts to help physicians and other clinicians understand the correct use of these codes. Most of them can be printed on a half sheet of paper (we recommend an eye catching color like yellow or bright blue for impact) to share with your clinicians.
