Hello! I currently am auditing a practice that participates at a teaching hospital. The residents are dictating the records and the Physicians are completing sign off statements which meet the Medicare requirements. However I need to know if Medicare requires these modifiers to be used. I have researched and I don't show that it is a requirement but I want to be sure! Does anyone have any experience with this situation????

GC Modifier for Teaching Physicians

Please Google "CMS Teaching Physician Guidelines"

You should find the CMS Medicare Learning Network.

Here, you will find the billing guidelines for Teaching Physicians for Residents.
