GW modifier

you can only use the GW modifier if the pt is in hospice care and the services are not related. The other issue is if the patient is is a skilled nursing facility-Medicare will not pay the provider for this service - you will need to bill the nursing facility. Check to see what the rejection on the Medicare eob states. Hope this helps
