what about being treated for a stenosis? and not mentioning any possible connection with "MS"?

You raise good points about possible emergency care or future treatment. Reminds me of what our Canadians have gone through.
I think this does remain a matter of some risk for our providers. If other docs submit under other codes, then they are running the risk of not getting reimbursed.
It is ok for Dr. Mehta's group to choose not to take that risk or to have wanted it spelled out from Medicare that this would be compensated. Having been denied that, it would seem this is the end of the road for Medicare patients with Dr. Mehta's group but not yet with other groups. We can wait for more shoes to drop.
