hospital coverage


my doctor is covering for an other physician in the hospital setting, do we bill with the other physician as the referring physician or do we need to modify and if so, which modifier would I use.

re: hospital coverage

No modifier needed for a covering physician. No ref md needed unless a consult is requested.
