    We have decided to have our nurses do the injections for Hep A and B, Humira and Cimzia, instead of our PA's. (so that the PA's will have more time to see patients.) Since the nurse is doing the injection--and does not have a provider ID# to bill under, does the charge for the injection get billed to the physician of record for the patient or to a physician physicially here?

    I would report the services under the provider who ordered them.
