Non Physician practitioners (NPPs) includes physician’s assistants, nurse practitioners, and clinical nurse specialists who practice either with or under the supervision of physicians. They are playing an important role in hospitals and physician practices, yet many practices are not aware that non-compliant billing increase the risk for denials and fraud. While billing for the services provided by NPP, physician must supervise the services provided by the NPP and also they should verify the scope and place of the service. The Office of Inspector General(OIG) continues to keep NPPs and incident-to services on their Work Plan as these services may be “vulnerable to overutilization and expose Medicare beneficiaries to standard of care that does not meet professional standards of quality”.
Through this webinar you will get the most up to date information on how to properly bill and submit services rendered by NPPs such as Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants. Our expert will also address the common risk areas for NPPs, Incident-to and shared visits and the different billing options and documentation requirements.
