Incident To Documentation Reminder

On March 8th, 2011, posted in: Tips by

CMS is looking for evidence that services were performed under physician supervision. Why? Instead of billing under the PA/NP’s individual NPI and receiving 85% of the allowed amount, more practices are going back to incident-to billing in order to receive 100% of the allowed fee schedule.

What to you need to do? It is as simple as adding the following statement to your documentation:

“Services performed under the supervision of Dr. ___________.”

Co-signatures are not required for billing purposes.
