Q5 is reciprocal billing arrangement. This is more what your providers want, I think you may be on the right track with just hiring someone else though.
page 65 is where it starts talking about reciprocal billing.
It sounds like they are just wanting to supplement service without having to take on additional hours. Which is not what the locum tenens or reciprocal billing policies are meant for.
Continuous time is exactly that, 60 consecutive calendar days, not business days or days worked. It would start over every time the regular physician came back then left again. So your locum works 60 days and your regular doctor comes back on day 61 then is off again on day 62, the 60 days for a locum starts over again at that point.
Hopefully this is helpful and not confusing,
