Thread: Hospice Billing with GA Medicaid

    Default Hospice Billing with GA Medicaid

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can any one give me some advice on how to bill Georgia Medicaid for a patient that is under a hospice program. My physician is not contracted with hospice, just simply saw the patient in the hospital?

    Did the patient revoke it's hospice certification during the hospital stay? If not, then you will need to seek payment from the hospice provider. If they did, they you will bill normally.
