The medical services of an intern or resident-in-training under an approved teaching
program of a hospital with which the facility has in effect the required transfer

Association or, in the case of an osteopathic hospital, approved by the Committee
on Hospitals of the Bureau of Professional Education of the American Osteopathic Association.
In the case of services of an intern or resident-in-training in the field of dentistry
in a hospital or osteopathic hospital, the teaching program must have the approval

effective with accounting periods beginning after 12/31/72, the services of interns
and residents-in-training in the field of podiatry under a teaching program approved
by the Council on Podiatry Education of the American Podiatry Association are covered.
The medical and surgical services furnished to the facility's patients by interns
and residents-in-training of a hospital with which the facility has a transfer agreement
are covered under medical insurance if the services are not covered under hospital
