Non-Facility practice, what does (Direct physician or other qualified health care professional supervision mean)? Can 96372 be billed for a MA giving the injection, providers are close by but not in the same room?

Definition of direct supervision:

Direct supervision in an office setting does not mean that the physician, CP, NP, CNM, CNS, or in the case of the physician directed clinic, the PA (hereafter referred to collectively as the physician/nonphysician practitioner) be physically present in the same room as his/her/clinic employee. However, they must be present in the office suite and immediately available to provide assistance and direction throughout the time the employee is performing the services.
