I AM BILLING FOR A FACILITY, BUT NEED TO TRACK WHO THE PERFORMING SURGEON IS, CAN I USE THAT PROVIDER INSTEAD OF THE REFERRING PRIMARY PHYSICIAN.  THANKS IN ADVANCE!

What do you mean you have to track the performing surgeon?  The UB04 has a place for attending physician and operating physician.  You should put whoever is overseeing the patients care in the attending physician.
