Discharge Disposition Codes
I am looking for some guidance on the proper way to report a discharge disposition code on a 111 TOB if we have a patient that goes from being an IP on our Acute Care Unit to an IP on our Distinct Part Psych Unit. These units each have separate provider numbers. In this case, should we use "65 Xfer to Psych Facility"? Would it ever be appropriate to use "06 still a patient" on an IP claim? It seems that the purpose for this code is to be utilized on an OP claim however it seems staff want to use it more frequently.
I did research this extensively on the NUBC and elsewhere but couldn't find an answer to this specifically. Any help would be much appreciated!
