Thread: Hospice and Home care oversight

  1. #1

    Default Hospice and Home care oversight

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know the correct way to bill Medicare when a physician does hospice oversight and is not a hospice employee. The same for home care....she oversees the plan of care for both??? Right now I billed using 99377 with a GV modifier for hopice oversight and for homecare i billed a G0179. My denial is saying they can not process claim with incorrect procedure code. Any help would be appreciated??? Do I bill with an office visit, POS 11 or put home care agency in there...same for hospice visit.
    I am very confused and any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Hospice oversight is G0182 with Mod GV( if not affiliated with hospice provider)
    Home Health oversight is G0181
    Leave the place of service as the office.

    Is the G0182 billed per 30 days on the same claim when the oversight runs for 2 or 3 months with the GV mod on all 3?
