Incident-to coding for your non-physician practitioners (NPPs) services in conjunction with a supervising physician continues to generate confusion- and 2019 will be no exception.
So, it's no surprise that these claims generate higher than average denials, and lead to hefty penalties for physician practices ranging from $163K to $1.5 million - but they don't have to.
Obviously, being paid 100% vs. 85% for your NPPs services is the goal. However, correctly maneuvering through complex incident-to guidelines so you can avoid audits and fines is anything but easy. That's where expert coder, Rhonda Granja, B.S., CMC, CMOM, CMA, CPC, comes in. Rhonda has put together a 60-minute training session to help you cut through the confusion of these difficult coding situations.
