If a specially trained RN is performing the Annual Wellness Visit under the direct supervision of a patient's physician, does Medicare allow this nurse to order the AAA on eligible patients?

Yes a RN can perform this service under direct supervision by the physician when billing under a Medicare provider number. The billing is under the entity providing the direct supervision.
