    You're right, Laura, I misinterpreted what you were saying in your earlier response.

    Our NPs and PAs are separately enrolled, but we sometimes bill "incident to" when it's appropriate and all documentation supports.

    As AR pointed out, the guidelines are detailed and specific and it is easy to err resulting in significant penalty to the practice once audited.

    SA Modifier

    Does anyone use the SA modifier when billing for a NP as an incident-to service ?
