    How is the E & M code affected if at all by a CNP(Certified Nurse Practitioner) being the provider?

    Thank you in advance.

    As long as the CNP is contracted with the health plan(s), the CNP is able to perform services within the scope of his/her license. However, the reimbursement is usually lower because the services were not performed by an MD/DO. We have two nurse practioners in our office. They bill all E/M codes except for consults (request is for the opinion and advice from our MDs).

    Hope this helps,
