Title: CORF Billing
Post by: labrec on May 20, 2009, 04:05:14 PM
I am billing MEDICARE for a CORF (Comprehensive Outpatient Rehab Facility) on a UB.  Regarding the physician who refers and oversees the treatment and signs the Plan of Treatment and gets progress notes -- does this Physician go on the UB as the Attending Physician or a Referring Physician.  Is there any documentation anywhere that supports your answer?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

It is required to have an attending physician on the UB04 form, and what you have described seems to be the attending physician.  From my experience it sounds like you need to enter his info in the attending physician spot, but I don't have any source to refer you to.
