    Default Medicare Susequent casting

    Promo: Code Books
    I was recently at a seminar and the lecturer specifically and loudly made it clear that you can NOT charge for subsequent casting in a global for medicare.

    Does anyone have any info on this from medicare???

    I guess I am confused because this clearly fits into the definition for mod 58 in the CPT book , (a) planned or anticipated.
