EXAMPLE:
We are a big facility that has mds, np, pa, various specialists, under the same tax id.
Say one of our PA's sees a pt with abdominal pain and refers to our surgeon and he has an opening today, will insurance pay for pt to see pa and surgeon same day?
This goes for others such as urology, obgyn,
Thank you

Yes. I used to work for a general surgery practice. We had several physicians with separate specialties. For example, one of our general surgeons treated a patient for hemorrhoids. If they then referred them to see our ColoRectal surgeon, we could get paid for both since they were different specialties.
