Incident To

grace Posted Thu 12th of September, 2019 13:49:50 PM
Would the below statement in an note created by Physician in an ARNP support" Incident To" at the end of the note: I personally reviewed the history and physical examination of our patient and was present for the key portions of the ARNP care. The available medical record was reviewed. The patient’s current medication list was also reviewed and is accurate to the best of my knowledge. I agree with the ARNP evaluation and participated in the patient’s management and orders.

Hello Grace,

Thank you for your question.

 

Medicare pays for services rendered by employees of a physician when 'incident to' criteria are met.

 

Yes, this note is sufficient to support ARNP incident to billing.

 

Thanks
