We are having a provider from another office cover for our physician in an emergent situation. We are anticipating covering for him in the near future. My understanding is that I should code the services as a Q5, since he has his own practice locally, as apposed to billing him as a Q6 Locum Tenes. Can someone please confirm my understanding.

Q5's have to be from the same group or practice. Based on what you typed, I would go Q6

Also, I believe there is a 30 calendar day limit on using Q6
