I work for two psychologist. One of them is in the process of obtaining a group npi and group tax id. We have been submitting claims with his group tax id and personal npi. My first question is, should we be submitting under his group tax id and group npi or have we been billing correctly?

The other Dr. is new to the group and is in the process of being credentialed with most insurances. However, she has been seeing patients and billing as a treating provider and billing the other dr. as a billing physician. Is this correct? Are her services even going to be paid? We have a billing consultant that suggested we bill with the billing providers tax id for the treating provider and reimburse her. Is that even acceptable?

I am sorry if this comes off as confusing as I am confused myself....
