Physiotherapy in ROB
If you treat a patient staying in a rest home for the elderly (ROB), you must use specific dispensing codes.
The use of specific provision codes is mandatory , regardless of whether the sessions take place in the rest home or outside it (e.g. in your practice room). The obligation does not apply to a session in a day hospital. This provision is contained in interpretation rule 7 of Article 7 of the nomenclature.
