The use of NPP is constantly increasing in order to ease workload and enable expansion of the practice. A lot of practices have chosen “all or nothing” approach to NPP billing i.e. billing all services directly or all services “incident to”. Neither of these is correct. NPP supervision 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.
Sign up for this enlightening event presented by expert speaker Jill M. Young, CPC, CEDC, CIMC and find out where to look for payer’s rules and what to do if you can’t find their policy. Understand the difference between “direct” and “incident to” billing which is the key for maximizing an office’s NPP services. Jill will provide specific information that allows you to implement your own personalized office plan to achieve this.
