If a provider completed his treatment plan for a patient and the patient does not start his treatment, but gets admitted for another medical condition and then comes back a few weeks later and the provider decides to re-do the treatment plan. I think we can not charge a treatment plan again, but could we charge for: new Initial SIM, Dosimetry & devices

If the post-hospital treatment scenario has certain impact to reconsider a new treatment plan then only you can charge for the treatment plan again otherwise not to charge treatment plan again.
But, you can charge for any other services provided in the corresponding visits or sessions

Sorry! for not being clear to you. Submitting detailed explanation.
The provider has already completed his treatment plan. Postponing this, the patient went for an Inpatient treatment for some other problem. Now, after being discharged, the patient went to the provider again. Now, if the treatment of the patient for an unrelated condition in the hospital has some impact on the health status of the patient so that the provider has to reconsider for a different mode of treatment plan, then in such a scenario, the second treatment plan should be billed too.
Please revert back for further query.
