I HAVE ADDED THE REQUIRED MODIFIER 'P' BUT AM I ALSO REQUIRED TO ENTER THE ADMIT AND DISCHARGE DATE FOR THE PATIENTS HOSPITAL STAY?

From the Medicare FAQ regarding transitional care. http://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Medicare-Fee-for-Service-Payment/PhysicianFeeSched/Downloads/FAQ-TCMS.pdf
What date of service should be used on the claim?
The 30-day period for the TCM service begins on the day of discharge and continues for
the next 29 days. The reported date of service should be the 30th day.
