Medicare only allows for 5 EPC visits per calendar year. Referrals from one year can overlap into the next. 

When a patient uses a visit from the previous years referral and then obtains a new referral for 5 visits for the current year.  The visit counter does not warn the practitioner who could bulk bill for a 6th  visit, only to have payment for the 6th visit rejected.
Can we have a number of visits in the calendar year counter included into the number of visits warning. This will help prevent rejected payments.
