    PA's, NP's, CNM's (aka physician Non-Physician Practitioners); generally anyone who can prescribe medication. In some cases an APRN (Advanced Practice Registered Nurse). For purposes of physician coding, this would not include an RN or Case Manager. The rules for hospital/facility coding are different and may include these type of providers.
