There is an awful lot of information out there. IMO, you cannot bill under a physician's name if he/she is on vacation. If the visit meets incident to guidelines you bill under a provider name who is in the office that day and is acting as supervisor. If mid level is alone in the office, you must bill under the mid level's own name.
