HI 00610.060 Supervising Physicians in the Teaching Setting
Medical insurance covers the services attending physicians (other than interns or
residents) render in the teaching setting to individual patients.
These services are performed primarily in hospitals, but may also be performed by
attending physicians supervising interns and residents in SNF's.
Payment on the basis of reasonable charges may be made for the professional services
rendered to a beneficiary by his attending physician when the attending physician
provides personal and identifiable direction to interns or residents who are participating
in the care of his patient.
The amount payable under the program is determined by using the same reasonable charge
criteria that apply to the services the physician renders to his other paying patients
(see HI 00401.305).
