Can a ARNP or a PA see a "new Patient" never before seen by the practice?

Yes, but Medicare rules state the ARNP or PA may ONLY bill under their own number and cannot bill under the physician’s number when either performing a service on their own. It is also important that the ARNP or PA always sign the encounter form when involved in a service.
