    Default E & M coding for NP or PA. Is it same as MD?

    AAPC: Back to School
    When coding for a Nurse Practioner or Physicians Assistant, Do we use the same guidelines, components, and levels of E and M coding, as if we were coding for an MD?
    Thanks for your time

    Hi Karen, you will want to refer to your CPT Coding guidelines regarding E/M codes. E/M codes are used by PAs and NPs.
