ON call covering Physician
« on: February 21, 2013, 09:27:15 AM »

 I am billing for a hospitalist A who was on call, and was covering for another physician hospitalist B to seeing patients in the hospital.

Do I bill like as a regular physician hospitalist A (on call covering physician) or do I append a q5 modifier? or is the hospitalist B supposed to be  billing for this and append the q5 modifier.

Please help.

Thank you,
