A locum tenens physician can see the exited physician's patients for up to 60 days. Sometimes, a new locum tenens physician is placed after the 60 days are up and they are allowed to enter their respective 60 days limit. A regular physician cannot bill over 60 calendar days for one locum tenens services.
