When An Assistant Surgeon Bills For A Procedure On The CMS-1500 Form Which Physician Goes In The Referring Physician section number 17. Is it the Primary Surgeon Who Called For Assistance with this procedure or The Original Physician Who Referred The Patient To The Primary Surgeon in the first place?

I received a call back from CMS and they state that I should use the original physician who referred to the primary surgeon. So I guess that is the right answer.
