Can a nurse practitioner perform 20610?

    New Call-to-action
    Can anyone confirm or deny that an APRN can perform a 20610? We're getting denied for scope of practice.

    Scope of practice is governed by state laws, so refer to the regulations in the state where the APRN is licensed and practices, or contact that state's board of nursing and they should be able to help you find the answer to this.
