Billing for Hospice service after discharge from facility

I am trying to find out how to appropriate bill for the admission to Hospice service that my physician discharged from hospital to hospice on Friday (last week). We use to be able to charge the G0180 hospice certification, but now this code seems only to be for Home Health and not Hospice. Can anyone help?

G0182 Hospice care supervision Requires 30 minutes or more of physician or NPP's time within a calendar month
The above Care Plan Oversight code may be appropriate if your physician is the supervising hospice physician and documents properly. Documentation should include when, how much time, and what was done. It is billable once per month as long as the cumulative time is at least 30 minutes.

AAFP has a very good article from several years back giving specific requirements: https://www.aafp.org/fpm/2005/0500/p23.html

Hope this helps!
