We’ll cover you when someone else is covering for you
Maybe you’re going on vacation. Perhaps a clinician is ill. As a network provider, you may have locum tenens physicians and clinicians temporarily working in your office from time to time.
In these cases, it will be your responsibility to:
- Contact us to let us know who the locum tenens physician is, and how long they’ll be providing services
- Provide oversight of the locum tenens physician as it relates to services that can be performed and authorization/pre‐certification requirements
- Provide reimbursement to the locum tenens physician
Services performed by the locum tenens physician should be billed to us under the provider name and number of the network physician who is providing oversight.
