    Default CLIA Number

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi All,

    I'm new to Urology with a new Urologist opening his own private practice. Does he need to obtain a CLIA number for lab?

    He is sharing space with another Dr but is not joining a group, just sharing office space, can he bill using that Doctors CLIA or are they per doctor....

    Sorry don't know much about the CLIA or if I even need to use it.

    Thank you !!!

    If he is going to do lab tests in the office, he will probably need a CLIA #. The following link should give you more information.
