    Default Medicare Charges for family member of provider

    AAPC: Back to School

    Am I correct in thinking that the provider cannot bill Medicare for a family member of his. Say his sister in law? Or am I just dreaming?

    Please help.

    I think you're ok with the sister-in-law...


    "A brother-in-law or sister-in-law relationship does not exist between the physician, supplier or owner of a provider (or supplier) and the spouse of his wife’s or her husband’s brother or sister."

    Section 130 - Charges Imposed by Immediate Relatives of the Patient or Members of the Patient’s Household
