Patient's certification was signed after DOD who has Medicare insurance. Can we still bill to Medicare and if so what DOS can we bill? or do we need to bill to the HHA?
Please help who is responsible and what DOS we can bill(DOD or MD signed date). Thank you :)

it's been my understanding that if the certification was signed by the provider AFTER the patient has died, it cannot be billed, but if the provider signed off before the pt died, it can be billed.

the DOS that you bill is the date that the provider signed off on the certification.
you cannot change the DOS in order to get paid.

hope this helps.
