For the purpose of Medicare, I would say no.
Palmetto: Services of nonphysician practitioners (e.g., CRNAs, NPs and PAs) may not be billed under the Locum Tenens or Reciprocal Billing reassignment exceptions. These provisions apply only to physicians.
Trailblazers:These guidelines do not apply to providers other than physicians (i.e., Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs), Physical Therapists (PTs), etc.).
Although Chpt 1 of Medicare's Manual doesn't specifically exclude NPP, the citation(s) keeps referring to physicians.
