Patient transport refers to physician attendance and direct face-to-face care by a physician during the interfacility transport of a critically ill or injured patient. Face-to-face care begins when the physician assumes the primary responsibility of the patient at the referring hospital/facility and ends when the receiving hospital/facility accepts responsibility for the patient’s care.
Procedure(s) or service(s) performed/directed by the physician before and during transport of a critically ill or injured patient is a covered benefit.
