New versus Established and Change of Tax ID#

Postby Charlene » Fri Feb 23, 2018 12:33 am

:D Hello,

We have an internal debate going on the rules for New versus Established patient specifically for patients following a provider from one local clinic to another local clinic within the 3yr period (same rendering provider NPI with different Group Tax ID numbers).

In this situation; would the patient be considered "New"; since they have never been seen at the new Group location ? Or are they Established because they have already seen the provider within the 3yr period ?

Please site the guidelines supporting your response.
