Getting paid at 100% of the physician fee schedule for your Physician Assistant (PA) and Nurse Practitioner (NP) claims is tricky.
Not only must you code the claims correctly, you must also comply with rules for incident-to, supervision, location exceptions, new vs. established patients, scope of practice, split-shared guidelines, etc.
If you get it right the payoff can be substantial since you'll be receiving 100% vs. 85% reimbursement for their services. However, if you get it wrong, you can end up having to pay massive fines and penalties for lack of compliance.
