ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues related to concurrent care and presents information on how Medicare defines and covers concurrent care. It is reported that, from a Medicare perspective, concurrent care exists where more than one physician renders services more extensive than consultative services during a period of time. When more than one physician has an active role in a patient's treatment, Medicare requires the care to be "reasonable and necessary." It is suggested that the best way to ensure that a person's claim for concurrent care gets paid is to file it before the other physician.
