You will probably need to contact your MAC directly for the correct answer to this. Different Medicare carriers may have different rules when billing these services. I would check with my MAC directly, just to be sure you are billing these correctly.

Hospice

Yes you can use the E/M 99304-99310 and 34 I work for a hospice company and those are the codes we use when our physicians go out to SNF & ALF

Yes, you bill Medicare.

As long as the PCP is not employed or paid by Hospice, you will file the appropriate CPT code along with modifier GV. If Medicare denies it, you can call them and ask them to re-open the claim with the modifier.
