    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know what the documentation requirements are to use G0180 and G0179 (certification and re-certification of home health plan of care)? Is a signed 485 in the patient's chart sufficient documentation?

    Yes, that is the documentation that we use and we have not had any problems billing these codes.

    Have a good day!
