Not clear how to code for a patient that came to my Primary Care Office from a Nursing facility for a consult of the care he was recieving from the nursing home for a broken hip.. I am sure a modifier would help, however I can not find the correct one.

Thanks for any help you can give.

yes. you are correct.. BUT

maybe my questions was unclear.. He is a resident at a skill nursing facility and was taken out for his visit here. As in hospice care, primary care is not covered for the PCP because they are cared for at the facility by a primary care doctor at that site. In the case of hospice care modifier GV or GW (for care given not related to terminal illness need to be appended. that is what got me thinking that there might be a modifier I am missing for off site primary care for a nursing home resident..

Thank you for your response.
