Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will unravel the Center for Medicare and Medicaid’s (CMS) guidelines on billing for “incident to” and Split/Shared services and will discuss the many benefits of doing so, while cautioning practices about compliance risks. The audience will be helped to understand the requirements when billing these types of services and to understand the documentation and supervision requirements of the physician.

Why Should You Attend:

To help address the need of running a more efficient and patient friendly medical practice, more and more physicians are utilizing skilled Non-physician providers (NPP), such as a Physician Assistant (PA) or Nurse Practitioner (NP), to help care for their patients. However, many physicians, NPPs, as well as coders and billers, are often confused as to how to bill for services provided by an NPP in collaboration with the physician and when it is appropriate for the NPP to bill independently. Added to their concern is the fact that the Office of Inspector General (OIG) has stepped up its efforts to identify physician practices not compliant with the rules.

This webinar is designed to help shed light on the definitions and differences between the “Incident-to” and Split/Shared guidelines, as well as to provide guidance as to the proper application of these rules. The information outlined will assist any practice in ensuring that they receive proper reimbursement for services rendered, while avoiding compliance risks.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • What is the definition of ‘incident to’ billing
  • In which setting(s) does ‘incident to’ billing apply
  • The practice and supervision requirements for the physician
  • What is “Split/shared” billing
  • What documentation is required for “split/shared” billing
  • Reimbursement - What to expect
  • Why Compliance Matters

Who Will Benefit:

  • Medical Billers
  • Medical Coders
  • Office Managers
  • Coding Compliance Offices & Auditors
  • Physicians working collaboratively with Non-physician providers (NPP)
