99496- billable if patient passes during 30 day period

Received a call from my biller yesterday indicating that since Mr X passed from his end stage metastatic lung cancer during the 30 day post hospital period and after my TCM visit, I am unable to bill 99496 and must change to a standard established visit code.. My research on this has turned up nothing. I am uncertain as to why the code requires a change. Any input/education would be appreciated. On top of this, the hospice service is still submitting for their services post mortem.
