First, NO they cannot bill as new patient visits. If there was an agreement to cover they must bill as established patients. This agreement can be verbal or in writing...hoping it was in writing.
Second...they need to bill the patients for their copays if they did not collect them. That is not your responsiblity. That would reflect as revenue to you that you never actually billed for... that could constitute fraud????
Third...They should not be charging for covering your practice if that was not agreed upon to begin with...that shouldn't happen anyway.
Hope this helps....
