    Depends on how they are credentialed.

    IM and FP are different specialties so their billing should not affect each other.

    No. No modifier is necessary. These should be going on different claim forms under different provider numbers.

    It is really no different than if the patient went to say an ortho at another facility before they came to your facility and saw the FP. The claims will not kick off each other even if they are the exact same coding because you have different specialties, they are not seen as the same provider.
