Selecting a different Provider on the Line Level (24J – Rendering Provider on the claim form) v/s the Claim Level –
The Line level Provider can be used in billing scenarios where the Provider’s Asst. (or Physician Asst.) may have rendered the service to the patient, but the claim may need to be billed under the credentialed or the Supervising Provider.
Note:If the Line level Provider and the Claim Provider are the same and do not need to be distinguished on a claim, then do not select anything on the Line Level, instead only choose the Rendering Prov. , this would result in both the fields (24J RP & Claim Provider) being populated with the selected Provider.
