Make the most of nonphysician practitioner resources

by Ben Cole, for HealthLeaders Media

Even though many practices employ nurse practitioners and physician assistants, collectively known as nonphysician practitioners (NPP), to make the office more efficient, some simply do not use them optimally or have the right personnel performing the right tasks. Moreover, practices may not be aware of coding regulations when services are rendered by NPPs, which may result in improper coding and inadequate reimbursement.
