Assistant Surgery Services By a PA
« on: March 09, 2011, 02:50:51 PM »
 Have any of you come across any payers (government or otherwise) that require the surgeon's name and NPI # in addition to the PA's provider info when you're billing for assistant surgery services rendered by the PA?

In Block 17 as "Referring Physician" along w/the surgeon's NPI #. (This is one of those payers that we only send a few dozen claims to each year - I'm hoping others don't follow their lead!!)

I haven't heard of it before but at least it's an easy fix.
