Can a Chiropractor bill an evaluation if the patient was referred from an MD within the same practice under the same NPI?

The chiropractor should have their own NPI which would be used to show they provided the E/M service. The group NPI would be used for payment purposes on the c laim form.
If the chiropractor hadn't seen the patient before, and there aren't any other chiros in the practice who have seen the patient in the prior 3 years, the patient would also be a new patient to the chiro so use the appropriate new patient code for the E/M.
