    When is the modifier GV used?

    I am auditing a chart where it is coded 99223GV. The patient is in the hospital. I thought the GV should be used if the physician is seeing the patient in the hospice/nursing home. Is this correct?

    Default GV Modifier

    The GV modifier is used when a physician is seeing a hospice patient, but the physician is not employed by the hospice.

    GV allows the attending physician to be paid for his services since he is not employed or paid under the hospice agreement.
