billing for two providers

Aida Posted Wed 21st of November, 2012 17:42:00 PM

I work for a mutli group specility, we have an ENT and just hired an audiologist.

if the ENT and audiology saw the patient the same day, can we bill for both services.

When multiple providers see the same patient on the same day, they need to combine their time and services for one overall E/M code. Because both physicians are billing with the same practice tax ID number, they would be considered one provider and their services would not be paid separately.
