Can someone please help with billing of locum tenens. With the billing, do you bill under the absent physcians NPI#, and do you use a modifier.
Thanks

We use QW modifier for medicare and I think we bill with the physician's NPI.
Correct me if I am wrong.

Yes, you bill under the absent provider's name with the Q6 modifier. Also note that CMS only recognizes PHYSICIAN locum providers.
