If a physician performs a surgery in a hospital outpatient setting, could the hospital bill Medicare for services rendered by the physician?

Yes the facility uses the same surgical codes as the provider. The provider will use the POS 22 and will be reimbursed only the surgical portion, the facility will be reimbursed all of the technical portion to cover the facility usage.
