    Default Dialysis Billing - Our Clinic has recently added

    AAPC: Back to School
    HELP! Our Clinic has recently added another nephrologist to staff. Both Physicians see dialysis patients at the local dialysis clinic. One physician saw pts only one day. The 2nd physician saw 3-4 visits. Do I bill the 90962 code for the first physician and the 90960 visit for the second physician or combine visits for one code only. I think I should devide because services are provided by different physicians. Any help is appreciated!

    According to Medicare the physician that does the complete/comprehensive assessment for the month is the one that bills for the charge even if the patient was seen by multiple physician/practitioners in the same group practice. So there will only be one code billed.
