Is your ER doctor dictating a report for the x-rays?
There is no reason the ER doctor couldn't bill for the reading if they are doing it and dictating a report. The question is, if that is what is happening why is a radiologist then coming in and reading as well?
My personal experience with ER and urgent care was the physicians looked at the x-rays but did not dictate reports and therefore did not charge for the readings. The radiologist came in and did the official read and report and billed for it.
There appears to be some overlap in the process or misunderstanding of who is or should be doing what.
