Does the MD have to sign the NPs note when billing Incident to or does direct supervision suffice?

All other rules of Incident to billing are being followed.


Thanks,

I don't believe there is a CMS rule stating that... but evidence of direct physician supervision is usually required if the claim is denied/audited. The direct supervision can be "proved" by the NP/PA stating it in their documentation like "Direct supervision was provided in the office today by Dr. XXX" OR the physician can sign and date the NP/PA's note like you said.
