Hi there,

I work in a Dermatology practice and there has been some discussion over billing for PAs and NPs... I'm wondering:

Can PAs and NPs see NEW Medicare Patients?

Thanks!!

Yes, they can see new patients, they just cannot bill a new patient as 'incident to' a supervising physician. The claims have to be billed under the NP's or PA's own credentials.
