A nurse practitioner sees a Medicare patient for the initial visit and sets up a treatment plan, billing under them at 85%, because there was no supervising physician on-site. The patient returns for a second visit to see the nurse practitioner, but this time there is a supervising physician on site. Can that second visit be billed as incident to even though the patient has never seen the physician and the NP set up the initial treatment plan? Thanks.​
