    Default Help filing out hicfa 1500

    AAPC: Back to School
    Ive got a physician and a nurse practionier in our office. When the np sees a patient on the hicfa the referingg is the physicans individual npi numer, and at the bottom the group npi goes there, but the rendering, should it be the physian or the nurse practionier individual npi? My comuter tech and myself are having a hard time getting this straight.

    unless u are billing incident -to the rendering is the nurse practitioner. if the service meets the definition of an incident-to encounter then the rendering is the NPI of the physician in the office while the patient is being seen,
