Does my Oversight MD need a Medicare number for ME to see Medicare patients?

Gess Gess (New) New

I work for a company doing concierge type visits for certain private insurance plans. I'm currently covering vacation for another NP in our company who sees Medicare patients for more chronic care type visits. I have Medicare/Medicaid numbers, but it just came to my attention that my oversight physician does not have these ID numbers.

No one seems to know if this matters or not. I couldn't find anything online that expressly said that we both have to have the numbers. But it seems a little strange, so I just wanted to check.

Any ideas?

If the billing is being done through the NP independendently that is fine...it is your license.
