The establishment of care is based upon face to face evaluation with the physician. If the patient has seen the physician within the last 3 years, regardless of where the patient saw the physician, they are still considered an established patient.
We have a physician that was practicing in Texas, but has since moved to New Mexico. A few of his patients travel to NM for medical treatment. Because they were evaluated by the physician within the last 3 years, we could not charge a new patient visit, as they had established care when he was practicing in Texas.
