I specialize in outpatient ambulatory surgery center facility billing and medicare part b denied our claim saying patient was enrolled in a hospice program at the time of service. The claims and service in question is not hospice condition related. Is there a modifier code that can be used by the asc facility? I researched and found that physician offices can use gv and gw on their billings.
Thanks!

I believe you can use the same modifiers. That is the way to signify that services are not being paid under the hospice arrangement with the care the patient is receiving.
