"During the 30 day period of TCM, can other medically necessary billable services be reported?
Yes, other reasonable and necessary Medicare services may be reported during the 30 day period, with the exception of those services that cannot be reported according to CPT guidance and Medicare HCPCS codes G0181 and G0182."
