Psychologist Hiring Employee
« on: April 10, 2012, 04:47:04 PM »
A psychologist (owner and sole proprietor) just purchased a business and is operating as a DBA. She wants to hire an employee (another therapist) to conduct a weekly group. She wants the group attendee payments to be made payable to her DBA.

Re billing insurance, I'm confused as to how to bill so the payment goes to the DBA. On the CMS 1500, does the employee's NPI number go in 24J? Who signs in box 31...the owner? The business address goes in 32, and the NPI of the owner in 32a? Does the business address also go in 33, with the owner's NPI in 33a?

rdmoore is right, but if the provider participates with the insurance they must also go thru the process of notifying the insurance carrier that the other provider will be working for her/him so that they can be properly linked.
