    Default consults

    During a CMS open door forum, they stated that claims will not be held pending the billing of an AI modifier. So even if the admitting physician never bills it should not affect payment for anyone else. They also stated with an emphatic NO that you cannot have an ABN signed nor balance bill the patient. The question about Congress is referring to an amendment that was supposed to be added to a bill, however last I heard the amendment was never added, so my guess is that it is a null issue unless we hear differently, no consults to regular Medicare.
