Does DOM reimburse hospitals for therapy services provided by salaried/contracted therapists at an offsite location?

According to current DOM policy, if contracted or employed hospital employees provide services offsite and outside of  the outpatient hospital departments, the hospital may not bill a charge on the UB04 claim format as an outpatient hospital service. This includes, but is not limited to, sites such as the beneficiary’s home, daycare centers, schools, skilled nursing facilities, physician clinics or therapy clinics. Such places of service are not in the hospital’s outpatient departments and do not qualify as an outpatient hospital service.
