Facility Fee? in Private Practice for visiting Plastics



Hello all.

I work for a private Mohs clinic and we have a plastic surgeon that comes into our office from time to time to do closures as a convenience to our patients. He is using our staff, our supplies, our "facility." He will bill through the hospital for which he works for his professional fee but that leaves us unpaid for the supplies and other overhead. The hospital he works for would not be able to bill a facility fee since their facility was not used. Does anyone know how we, as a private practice, could be reimbursed for those expenses?

Thank you.
