If they have an agreement my understanding is yes, it is appropriate. This falls under reciprocal billing, Q5 modifier.
I don't have any providers in that type of arrangement and I never have but there are several who have responded previously to other similar posts stating they do, hopefully they will answer with more info.
From a risk stand point I don't personally understand why you would enter into this kind of arrangement but that is just me.
