I am looking for some help with billing home health services by RN's. This code does not specify that it is ONLY for Hospice, rather it says it is for Home Health OR Hospice services. We are getting denials that this is only for Hospice and that we can not use it. I have been trying to find information about maybe appending a modifier to show it is home health only?
Does anyone else have any experience with this sort of service?
Who is the payer? I bill for a Home Health Agency, and we use both of these codes regularly and are reimbursed appropriately.
