Critical Care services may be provided and reported for payment by qualified NPP's (NP/PA) when the services meet the definition and requirements of critical care services and must be within the scope of practice and licensure requirements for the State. Critical Care cannot be reported as a split/shared service. Documented critical care time shall reflect the evaluation, treatment, and management of a patient by an individual physician or NPP and shall not be representative of a combined service between a physician and NPP.

Yes an MLP (NP/PA) can interpret an EKG, all that is required is a supervising physician statement unless your carrier or hospitals policy indicates other directive.
Hope this answers your question.
