Billing in the Name of Another
Medicaid has learned that many physicians routinely allow extenders to bill in the physician's name, thereby reaping an additional 20% for such services. Unfortunately, not only is such conduct illegal, but Medicaid (and soon Medicare) regularly analyzes the number of services attributable to a single physician and will investigate when it feels that the number of services/physician exceeds the statistical norm.
