CPT Coding Changes

Topic: group homes

Can anyone suggest what type of cpt code I can use when my provider goes to a group home and sees an individual patient.  I used to bill E&M's because they see the patient in an office (not office owned or rented to us). Now I understand I have to bill by the location of the facility.  Inpatient hospital cpts don't fit, nursing facilities doesn't seem right and  custodial care doesn't quite seem right either because it says it doesn't include a medical component.  I am at a loss and would appreciate any suggestions
