    Default NP and Nuclear Stress Test

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can a NP supervise a Nuclear Stress Test without a physician present in the office?

  2. #2


    Yes, an NP can supervise a stress test without an MD being present. Just make sure to bill the supervising codes under the NP only.

  3. #3


    Yes a NP can supervise a nuclear stress test; however an MD has to be in the office suite during the testing. This follows under the direct supervision rules and policy. Check the Medicare on-line only manuals for more information regarding the supervison rules.
