Good evening! I'm very new to all of this, especially Medicare rules and regs, so I am very grateful for any help. My question - if a surgeon has an NP or PA as a surgical assistant, how is reimbursement broken out under Medicare? My meager understanding is that the PA/NP would receive 16% of the surgeon's allowable reimbursement. Does this mean that the doc gets the balance of the allowable? This question may sound stupid, but I haven't been able to find any sort of language on CMS to show a break out. Perhaps, I don't know enough about Medicare "speak" to understand what they mean. Any help would be most appreciated.
