Non Physician Practitioners (NPP) are being seen more and more in both the office and the hospital setting. You will be surprised to know the number of limitations and independence rules that are overlooked every day. Compliance rules can vary carrier to carrier and that makes it even more confusing. Just because you were paid does not imply you are providing a service compliantly. "Everyone does it that way" is not a defence when the carrier is taking payment back.
Join expert speaker Jill M. Young, CPC, CEDC, CIMC in this informative session to locate CMS/Medicare's rules for NPP, incident to and direct services. She will help you find the supervision rules for diagnostic procedures and how to apply them. This 60-minute session will provide tips for working with carriers who do not have a defined policy for incident to services.
Also, get ideas for how to structure your office (or hospital) use of NPP's to be efficient and compliant.
