We have an orhopedic doctor who set a fracture at a school during/after sports event. Can he charge for this service with school location and documentation?

Our team doctors are a different doctor than this particular one in our group, and they volunteer their time at our area college.
Thank you in advance.

Really good question... If they volunteer then I am assuming they do not have a contract with the college. Our docs have a contract with the colleges, therefore any services provided on site or at other games is included in our contract fee. Not much help, I know... I would imagine he needs to be contracted to do so, no? :(

This particular doctor is not one of our 2 team doctors with the college. He is another Orthopedic in our practice that was at a school and treated a fracture and documented it.
Has anyone ever billed with the location of a school (3) and gotten paid?
Thanks so much.
Lynn, CPC
