Unraveling Split Shared Visits, CMS Guidelines, and Payer Rules for Non-Physician Practitioner Billing

The rules of billing for Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants can be confusing and challenging. Each payer can have their own definitions for direct and indirect billing of their services. Comparing these rules reveals a diverse and often times confusing list of what compliant billing of these provider’s indirect services entails. 

CMS/Medicare and CPT have been in different places with their definition of "substantive portion" for a split shared visit. It was anticipated that in 2024 CMS/Medicare would again have a different way of looking at which provider can bill this type of joint service when done in a facility setting. The PFS Final rule surprised many as CMS/Medicare said they would be following the new clarified policy set forth in CPT's 2024 code book. What is this new definitions of "substantive portion" and what does it mean for your NPs and PAs working in the hospital and other facility based locations?  Listen in and learn.  Bring your questions with you.
