From personal experience, this could be carrier specific. I had some carriers that would allow a supervising physician. As a precaution, I would have the carrier submit proof in writing.
I found that the majority of carriers would not honer a claim until they were actually credentialed. This information was obtained through provider relation correspondence. The obvious problem with that was the filing limit for that individual carrier.
For some carriers, they will go retroactive.
I wish I could give you a better answer. Maybe someone else has some input.
