Out patient services on skilled inpatient resident in a nursing home


Best answers
Hello All!
I work at a skilled nursing facility. I have a question regarding one of our resident who is on skilled care (Medicare part A) right now but she also has a doctor appointment coming up, as far as I know the physician services are not covered under consolidated billing, can the doctor bill Medicare Part B for his services or the nursing home would be eventually liable for paying the doctor for these services. I would really appreciate if some one would have a slightest idea regarding this matter.

Thank you
