HELP!! My physician provided attending care for a patient of his for hospice. He is not contracted by the hospice provider. I am aware that I have to use the GV modifier but what HCPC code do I bill with for the days her oversaw the patients care....I was told to use the normal inpatient cpt codes but I think that is only if he was employed by the hospice provider. I found a Q5005 code but I am unsure if that is a one time code or is there a code I use for each day she was inpatient and he provided care until her demise? I have never done coding for hospice care so I am lost
