NP/PA supervision in provider-based departments

Medicare Insider, December 23, 2008

I thought I would do a follow-up to Hugh’s note last week about physician supervision. One of the clarifications that I have discussed with many people recently is related to nurse practitioners (NP) or physician assistants (PA). CMS clarified that NPs/PAs may not provide the physician supervision in provider-based departments. This fact was not a surprise to most, but the impact for NP/PA rendered services should be considered.
