    Default Pacemaker checks in office

    We do pacemaker checks in our office. Our doctor is in the office and our nurse is in with the Rep. We have a nurse practitioner, can she be the direct supervising physician in the office? Can she sign off on the pacemakers?

    Our nurse practitioner does all office and remote PPM checks. She has an NPI number and we bill for her.
