    Post How Do Help Set-up This Group/Billing Advise PRP (Platlet Rich Plasma)

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello Everyone: Hope you all had a great holiday!!

    I could use some advise, I have a new client who is a DC not practicing. He is starting a group of Orthopedic Drs. to treat joint problems with a method called PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) injections. The physicians are all specialized in the Orthopedic field. Now here is the clinker....How do you set up a group like this. The managing physican who will not be seeing patients, just doing administration work over the group does not want to start a corp as of yet.
    1. So do I just add these new physicians to this practice and register them w/Medicare & insurance carriers' under the new location with their established NPI #'s? or
    2. Do you set-up a new group NPI and register all the physicians under that NPI group?
    3. Do you know what Code should be used, Modifier, reimbursements

    Also anyone out there that is billing for PRP injections anyd insights that you might have will be helpful, sites to visit, reading material etc would be of great assistance.

    Thanks Terri
