    Sorry I don't have any links or documentation on this, but we use the GC modifier to notify Medicare when the attending saw the patient with a resident (teaching facility). It doesn't influence payment; just used for notification.

    We use the GC modifier mostly with our consult services when billing to Medicare. Otherwise we receive a "split/shared services" denial.
