Reimbursement for Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners

Duration: 23:33

With physician shortages increasing in the United States due to aging baby boomers, ophthalmology practices should consider employing physician extenders such as PAs and NPs.  With some training, they can be immediately useful.  Moreover, in 6-12 months, they can become invaluable to the practice.  This webinar introduces PAs and NPs and explains what they are and how they differ.  The reimbursement of physician extenders is explained in detail.  Pertinent regulations are clarified, particularly those related to “incident to” services.  In addition, the distinction between physician supervision and physician collaboration is also discussed.  Physician extenders may just be that untapped human resource you’ve been looking for in your practice!
