Every procedure in the office is billed as if a qualified provider (the urologist, a physician assistant, or nurse practitioner) provided the service. Therefore, the nurse (or technician) who performs a test is not reimbursed; the service is instead charged as an "incident to" service by the qualified provider who is immediately available and in the office at the time of the procedure.
