I need clarification regarding the correct way to submit charges when it involves billing for a P.A., and the primary physician.

I work for a Pain Management Practice where we have a Clinic side and right through a door is the Ambulatory Surgery Center. My PA's are seeing patient's in the clinic and the physician is across in the ASC performing surgical procedure's in the operating theater. Can anyone please provide me with the correct guidelines and in writing if possible as to when it is appropriate to press the "Incident To" button so that correct provider's NPI and/or name appears on the claim? Would I check the "Incident To" box when the provider is here so that his name appears on the claim instead of the P.A.? Thank you in advance for assisting me in understanding how to make sure that I am performing this function correctly!!!!:)
