Date and Time: December 4, 10:30 am to 11:30 am
As nonphysician practitioners (NPPs), such as physician assistants (PAs) and nurse practitioners (NPs), assume more patient care and responsibility, proper coding and billing for these mid-level providers should become a top priority. This session will discuss the criteria for NPP billing and coding, independent vs. “incident to” billing, how to code for shared visits, and coding for the services provided by a nurse or medical assistant. Coding for NPP services can be a source of significant revenue, but coding correctly is the key. Substantial paybacks have occurred recently when payers, especially Medicare, have audited PA and NP billings. To avoid these consequences for your practice, get the information you need by attending this session.
