Global Billing Vs Billing Under Provider

For an IVF cycle (that is not being billed global to an insurance plan) is it appropriate to bill the charges under one “global” provider like we would for a global plan? For example, if one provider saw the patient initially, set the plan, and ordered the cycle charges. Would we bill this whole cycle under that provider, or bill each line under the specific provider that performed the procedure (ex. the retrieval)? Usually with other specialties, we would bill under the performing provider, is there an exemption for IVF? Is this like global cases that are billed for OB services?
