The rendering provider must be the NPI in 24J and the signature on line 31 must correspond to that NPI. The NPI on 33A is the NPI of the practice. At no time can you use an NPI on 24J that is not the rendering or the supervising provider. A supervising provider must be the provider in the immediate area while the patient is being attended to. So the question is why would they want you to bill under the wife doctor and not the rendering doctor at any time?
As far as how to prove you are correct? Look at the instructions for 24J it states rendering/supervising provider.
