Patient was seen in the Hospital and we found out later patient was enroll in Hospice. Since admission face sheet had Coventry listed as insurance we sent a claim to them with GW modifier but they denied the claim. Now on the face sheet they removed the insurance and added Vitas information.
Can a claim for a Hospice patient be billed to the Hospice directly?

Yes, you can bill to the Hospice directly.
