Can anyone help me? We do device checks in office and remote. So we have had patients on hospice who still get their devices check and see Doctor and I use the GW modifier because I was told by the patients family they are not on hopsice for his heart conditions. I never had a problem with this kind of thing. My problem is when do I know the specifics of a patients hospice and what our role is? I have patients that come in and are on hospice and we dont know because the family says nothing and I get denials, how do I know if that patient should still be seen or still have their deviced checked? Do I call the PCP or family or nursing home if they are in one. I dont want to bill with the modifier if they should not be seen.
