diagnostic testin

I would like some input in regards to physician supervision requirements for diagnostic testing. If a NPP performs the technical component of a test under direct physician supervision, does that part have to be billed under the NPP or can it be billed under the physician?


  • In an office setting (POS) it can be billed out "incident to" under the physicians NPI, if it is an established patient.

    All other settings, 22, 23, 21; the procedure should be billed out by the NPP
