For those individual practitioners who are employees of the IHS, tribe or tribal facility that provides offsite care to the IHS, tribe or tribal Medicare Part B beneficiary, the facility can bill under reassignment from the employee. With regard to contract practitioners, the IHS, tribe, or tribal facility can accept reassignment and bill for offsite services if the space where the contract practitioner provides the service is owned or leased, by the IHS, tribe, or tribal facility.

The physical therapists/occupational therapists that are employees of the IHS, tribe or tribal group practice will enroll in Medicare Part B and receive a PIN. The physical therapists/occupational therapists will reassign their benefits to the facility. The facility will then bill Medicare for their services.
