RCSU & 23Hr - same provider

RCSU & 23Hr – same provider

The prohibition of billing a per diem for both a RCSU and 23hour Observation site when operated by the same agency creates unintended barrier for expansion co-located facilities operating consistent with the Crisis Now Model and best practices in crisis care that is cited.  This appears inconsistent with the allowance that if the 2 services had been provided by different providers that reimbursement would be supported.
