Q: How do you bill for a patient that is admitted after a 3 day hospital stay that comes for therapy; however after being admitted to a skilled nursing facility, you find that the patient does not meet the qualifying minutes and ends up with a rehab low?

 

A: If the patient met all the criteria for a Rehab low and the skilled coverage criteria was met as well, then the Rehab low is the category that you would bill.
