Thread: Coverage for another Dr.

  1. #1

    Default Coverage for another Dr.

    AAPC: Back to School
    We cover for an Internal Med physician at the hospital who refers to us for Hem/Onc patients. Can I bill for the coverage when we have a mutual patient that our physician sees as coverage for the Internal Med. physician and sees again for Hem/Onc on the same day?

    Thanks for any help,

    Default No

    If all the claims are going out on your NPI and tax ID -- No. Only one claim for one E/M service per day per provider. Use all the documentation together to arrive at your level of service.

    Hope that helps.

    That's what I was afraid of. Thanks for your help.
