OV by MD & Acupunture in same day


Best answers
We recently added an acupuncturist to our practice. I am wondering if we can schedule our patient's for an office visit to see their PCP and also schedule an appointment for the patient to see the acupuncturist on the same day. This is a very common request that our office receives, so patient's don't have to make two trips. In the past, I have always advised my scheduling staff to split "duplicate" appointments and make the patient come on separate days to ensure our office could get paid for each visit. Does anyone know if this would be the same scenario with an acupuncturist? Since she is part of our Family practice, she has the same Tax ID number as the rest of our physicians.

Thank you!
