Reason Code 31287

Published 09/25/2020

Hospice claims must be billed monthly and must conform to a calendar month (e.g., January 1–31). This means that only one claim per month for each patient.

Ensure the "From" date on the claim is one day after the "To" date on the previous claim. Ensure the "To" date on the claim is the last calendar day of the month (unless the beneficiary died, was discharged, or revoked hospice). Refer to the Hospice Sequential Billing web page for additional information.
