Question regarding APRN

We are seeing Medicare denials when APRN orders high tech radiology eg.(MRI,CT ,Mammo 3d.

Since the APRN has a collaborating agreement with the physicians in this group, could the diagnostic testing be ordered under the supervising collaborating physician in this group.

Thanks for any help!


  • Not sure where you're located but check your state APRN laws. In Georgia an NP cannot order an MRI, CT scan, PET scan or other nuclear testing unless it is a documented life threatening situation.
