How is Hospice Billing Done?
Add the hospice as an insurance company.
Begin the hospice insurance code with "HOS" + abbreviation for the hospice.
Make the paper claim form say "NURSINGS"
Primary insurance for the patient will be the insurance code entered above.
Tie Carrier to HCPCS:
Create the item/insurance connection.
Enter the daily rental rate for the allowable.
Enter the daily rental price where it says "Special Pricing for Payor"
(This will allow it to pull this price instead of the retail price.)
Requires "From" and "Thru" dates to be entered to allow a "Span" to be created.
The span = the number of days.
The quantity will default to the number of units.
The price will be entered from the Tie Carrier Relationship.
When you hit Enter on the price it will show the extended amount beneath.
Change the quantity to the number of items delivered.
Change the price to what the extended price was.
The units will equal the span.
Type of service will be 18.
Billings Allowed = 999.
Other than these changes, the billing is the same.
