Can I use a Replacement exemption from a doctor who never billed at the practice…?

QUESTION OF THE WEEK…

Can I use a Replacement exemption from a doctor who never billed at the practice…?

In order for a Replacement Exemption to be valid, your doctor must have billed to the practice within the last 12 months. They must also demonstrate consistent billing- if they have only billed one day, for example, you won’t be able to use this exemption. 

So if the doctor who is leaving, never really even started at your practice and never billed a patient, you won’t be able to use their exemption for an incoming doctor
