Just wanted some input on the subject of covering physcians. I am new to OB/GYN. I bill for two doctors who are at the same location but not a group and bill completley individually. Doctor A was out of town and signed out to covering Doctor B. Doctor B ended up delivering 2 of Doc A's patients. I thought Doc B would bill for delivery only and Doc A just antepartum, HOWEVER, in the past it was billed as , Doc A still bills global code for delivery and pays Doc B a predetermined " per diem covering fee". Is this allowed and legal? ( Doc B's name is on summary of L&D birth report) Does this fall under the rules of covering doctors???????? HELP PLEASE!!!!!!!!
