Hospital outpatient Billing vs Physican Practice billing

    I wanted to reach out to see if anyone had any insight on an mfm practice billing as a hospital outpatient department vs a physician practice? I am trying to compare. We are located on a hospital campus currently and billing as an outpatient department, however looking to consider billing as a physician practice. Our professional portion of the visit is at a lower reimbursement rate now and I know that if we billed as a practice that would increase. However the technical fee going to the hospital is the bigger reimbursement when billing as a hospital department and if changed to a physician practice then that would decrease. Looking for any help and or examples that could help compare data.
    Thank you kindly,
