You can get paid 15% more from your Non-Physician Practitioners (NPPs) services. Incident to billing.
The problem is that Medicare “incident-to” billing rules are just plain confusing. And private/commercial payers have their own set of guidelines you must follow. To get your claims paid at the higher rate, you MUST MEET ALL the necessary requirements, or your billing will land you in serious financial and legal hot water.
The only way you can bill ALL of your NPP services accurately and increase your potential to be reimbursed at the higher physician rate is to master both Medicare’s supervision rules and incident-to guidelines. If your practice is limiting the patients seen by your mid-level provider, you could be limiting your revenue as well as the patient flow.
This is where Kim Huey, MJ, CHC, CPC, CCS-P, PCS, CPCO, COC, can help. During a 60-minute online training session, Kim will walk you through the Medicare incident-to supervision rules that apply when your NPPs see patients. She’ll provide you with step-by-step advice so that you can improve the accuracy of these claims and get paid the most for all of your NPP services.
Here are just a few of the proven incident-to billing tactics you’ll receive by attending this 60-minute online training:
- Master incident-to billing and boost your NPPs reimbursement by up to 15%
- Quickly identify and avoid incident-to billing errors that will get you audited

In order to recoup more of the reimbursement you are eligible for, you must understand what supervising REALLY means within the context of your NPPs incident-to services. By attending this expert-led session, you’ll have the confidence to overcome these complicated requirements.
