Hello fellow Coder!
I looked this info up for a chapter member several months ago. Here is the info from that time according to the Georgia Part B carrier.
"A patient's regular physician may have reciprocal arrangements with one or more physicians to substitute for him/her on an occasional reciprocal basis. This type of arrangement is common and does not have to be in writing. Medicare will not pay for services beyond a continuous 60-day period.
A locum tenens arrangement is a written agreement between the regular physician and a substituting physician that allows the regular physician to bill and receive payment for the substitute physician's services as though the regular physician had performed the services. Medicare will not pay for services beyond a continuous 60-day period."
Here is the website link to an online course:
I hope this helps!
