I went to a seminar approved by the AAPC, last week. The instructor brought up medical/cardiac clearance prior to surgery. She said if the surgeon requests clearance prior to surgery, the insurance company will pay the clearing physician. However, she stated that the payment would be 10-15% of the payment for the surgery and would be taken from the surgeons payment. I work for a surgeon. He says thats fee splitting and is no longer allowed. Who's right?
