I just wonder how HCPCs G8256 "Reconciliation of discharge medications with current medication list in the medical record" is conducted in reality?

Is it supposed to be submitted verbally? I mean ...is doctor or nurse practitioner trying to make sure that the patient/relative understood what medications and dosages are?
Doctor just provides a patient or his relative with a list of dscharge medications?
Patient gets it by mail?

In other words , under what circumstances /requirements this code G8256 is generated in Database system?

Thank you in advance,
