    Default General Surgery Group

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi All,

    I have been hired to do set up, billing/coding for a General Surgery group. my understanding is that most of the surgery's will take place at the hospital, kind of like their own surgery center. I have no clue how to set up a group as far as NPI's PTAN's and Tax ID's and I'm confused on how my HCFA 1500 should look as a group. I have only billed for professional services for individual providers....Can someone educate me on this please !!!!

    Desperate need of help !

    Default Group setup

    The "group" name/address should be in box 33 of CMS 1500 and therefore group NPI. This is where the payer will remit to. Tax ID should be in box 25 for the group based on what is registered with Secretary of State office/and on the IRS document for the registration of the group. Box 24 J will be NPI of rendering provider.

    Hope this helps - send me a message if you need more help.
