Hello! We recently had a group of two NP's, and that group tax ID retired and the NP we kept on opened up her own tax ID new practice. When she sees the patients again for a e/m will she bill it as a new patient since it is a new tax ID?

Thank you!

New patient status is unrelated to tax id, it is related to the person (provider).

"A new patient is one who has not received any professional services ... from the physician/qualified health care professional... within the past three years."
