Any covered Medicare services not related to the treatment of the terminal hospice condition and which are furnished during a hospice election period, may be billed to Medicare for payment. Services should be coded with the GW modifier ("service not related to the hospice patient's terminal condition"). DME MACs process services coded with the GW modifier in the normal manner for coverage and payment determinations.
