Billing and coding for advanced clinical practitioners

Melissa’s Mention…   “A 67-year-old patient with diabetes shows up for her appointment. Her A1C levels are high. She reveals during the visit with the advanced practice clinician that she’s not taking her medication as prescribed. The patient’s physician is doing rounds at the hospital and is, thus, unavailable to consult with the patient in person.   At this point, the practice needs to answer a couple questions:   Can the nurse practitioner (NP) or physician assistant (PA) bill the visit under his/her own national provider identification (NPI) number? Or, is the visit appropriate for “incident to” billing and, thus, billable under the physician who created the patient’s care plan?
