According to the "Medicare Part B Hotline" (December 1996):
"Effective 1/1/97, services rendered by the teaching physicians
involving a resident inthe care of their patients must be identified
when submitting the claim on the HCFA-1500."
This would be done by your billing operations as the GC modifier in
order to be in compliance with requirements of section 15016 of the
Medicare Carriers Manual.
Happy Holidays from HCFA.
