    Default Training of NP

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone have any documentation from CMS on what the Training NP can document. She is not employed by the group. She is finishing her training by being in a physician's office. Can she document anything since she in not employed by the group? I need book chapter and verse to provide information to physicians who allow NP's to shadow them.

    Default NP

    Since she is in training for NP, she is an RN and can only document what an RN is allowed to.

    Hi Debbie,
    That is correct!!

    He/She can only document what the current discipline of his/her status

    CMS Billing/Coding guidelines is a excellent reference for any provider type.
