B400 (Community palliative care on-call coverage)

Is it possible to bill the B400A - code for community palliative outpatient on call - for an individual MDs within a billing group? 
I would like to set up a group billing and then submit the B400a daily to the MD that actually worked on those days. 
Hi Dr. B,

Thank you for your email.

Yes, you can submit the service code B400 (Community palliative care on-call coverage) with an existing group number.

As there is no specific patient's information when you bill this code, you can do the following:

1. Create a new patient with the health card number of 9777777779 (a dummy patient profile)
2. Create a new claim for this patient.
3. When we submit the claim to the ministry, we will exclude the patient details.

Attached is the Community Palliative Care On-Call Program Agreement for your reference.

Please let me know if you have further questions.
