Thread: If Ortho practice owns MRI who do you bill under?

  1. #1

    Question If Ortho practice owns MRI who do you bill under?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Good afternoon:
    Our large Orthopedic practice owns their own MRI and performs MRI's. (They are read out of state, professional component purchased) Should we bill under the physician who orders the MRI? Under the physician who is physically in our building in case of medical emergency? Or in case of after hours, we employ residents who are physically in the building, so would they need to be separately credentialed for billing purposes?
    Will bill our MRI's globally.
    Thanks for your input in advance.
    Lynn, CPC

    Whoever the medical director for the group is should be the physician that all MRI's all billed under.
