I would imagine that the insurance companies would consider them new patients. In my practice, all doctors bill under the same tax id#, if one doctor sees the patient and then the patient sees a different doctor (one they've never seen before) within the practice, they're still considered an established patient...they're all billed under that one tax id#. So, I would imagine if charges for these patients are billed under a different tax id#, they should be considered new. And they are actually new patients, they have never been seen by this doctor before, he was not a part of the old practice right? That's just what I think anyway. Sorry I don't know where to find this in writing...
