More and more medical practices are utilizing skilled non-physician practitioners (NPPs), such as Physician Assistants (PAs) and Nurse Practitioners (NPs), to help provide more efficient and patient-friendly care. But this trend has certainly not escaped the attention of the HHS Office of Inspector General (OIG)— in fact, the OIG has stepped up its efforts to identify practices that aren’t complying with the NPP coding and billing rules.
Join coding expert LaTrece Freeman-Baker as she instructs you on how to bill for services that an NPP provides in collaboration with a physician— versus when the NPP should bill independently. Learn the definitions and differences between the “incident-to” and split/shared guidelines and how to properly apply these rules.
After attending this webinar, you will be able to properly document and bill for services that involve an NPP. Office managers and coders will be able to identify and educate clinical staff on the correct application of the incident-to and split/shared guidelines. Also, billers will have the ability to research issues related to claims denials involving NPP services. Ultimately, you will know how to ensure that your practice receives proper reimbursement for services rendered, while avoiding compliance risks.
Here is a taste of what you will uncover:
