    Default Split/shared visits

    AAPC: Back to School
    I know that Medicare does not allow split/shared visits for consults or new patients. Do these rules only apply to Medicare? I cannot find anything in our SC BCBS contract regarding split/shared visits.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Yes, I believe this is a Medicare policy/guideline - I would check with my provider relations contact to determine thier policy on NP/PA guidelines and incident to/Shared/split policies - many payers will follow Medicare's guidelines but not always.

    Hope that helps!
