    Default documentation for physician and NP's

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a couple of things I would like to get some help with.
    1) subq visits: can a physician refer to a NP's note and state that they agree with the exam and assessment? Can the physician use any of the NP's note? Where can I go to find documented clarification on this?
    2) in the critical care setting: can the physician use any part of the NP's note in the critical setting? How is the documentation different than a subq visit? Where can I find more information regarding the critical care setting and the use of an NP's documentation?

    Need to provide information to a physician who is requesting clarification on this matter.

    I would go to your local medicare website and search for incident to guidelines.
