We recently have started employing Nurse Practitioners and PA's. I am trying to make sure our records are correctly showing when a service is a "incident to". Our providers are signing off on the charts as well, but is this sufficient? I would think they need some type of wording or proof of how they are involved in the patient care. Our records are electronic.

Any advice? I have been trying to look on the CMS website but everything is so vague when it comes to incident to.

Thank you in advance. :)

In the wording for incident to it states that the physician must have a plan of care for this condition in the patients chart so we have the NP document " per physician order of__________"
