You can only use if for 60 days if they just left the practice.
The only time extension is if they have been called to active duty. There are exceptions to this rule when this happens but it doesn't sound like this is your situation. It shouldn't matter if they start working elsewhere since you will be submitting your claims with the Q6 modifier which identifies it is not really them. Key word is "shouldn't", I have not personally had a problem but that doesn't mean it can't/won't happen on occasion.
