Non-physician Practitioners (NPP) are being utilized in more and more practice situations to help ease the workload and allow for expansion of the practice. Many practices have taken an “all or nothing” approach to NPP billing: billing all services directly or all services “incident to”. Neither of these is correct. The supervision of NPP’s in the hospital and for diagnostic and therapeutic testing has seen comments and clarifications from the OPPS in the past 3 years. The impact of this information should not be viewed negatively. The concept of “Split shared visits” is relatively easy to understand but the practical use and documentation requirements become the challenge. Non-physician Practitioners (NPP) billing rules are variable.
