If a physician is in the office can a 51700 or 51720 (plus medication) be billed as an "incident to" when performed by a nurse? :confused:

Did you ever get an answer to this question? I just had an RN call me and she would like to see if she could bill for her time as well.... MD came in and saw the patient, but the RN did the procedure

Incident to can only be used when a non-physican practictioner is performing services (NPP or PA for example). Any services that an RN performs would be billed under the supervising dr and not subject to incident to....does that make sense?
