    Default Fellowship ?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone else bill for fellow doctor's ? I have two fellow doctor's in my Ophthalmology clinic but they both have number so therefore stand alone. We recently added some new fellowship doctor's who don't have a number. I know they cannot stand alone but should we amend the GC for Medicare ?? Someone told us yes but i thought GC was for residents, isn't being a fellowship mean your done with your resident program ??

    I think you must have posted this twice, because I'm sure I've answered on another thread.

    No, they're not billable if they are fellow in Ophthalmology.
