This second edition includes a framework of delegation and supervision of prescriptive authority to APRNs and PAs created during the 83rd legislative session.
Many of the laws governing health care were enacted before the prevalence of nonphysician practitioners (NPPs). Although NPPs are now common in every setting, changes in legislation have taken years to draft, disseminate, and review.
This publication provides information about the qualifications; supervision requirements; and practical aspects of contracting, credentialing, and billing for nonphysician practitioners.
This publication will cover the following:
- Qualification: Education and Licensure
- Hiring an NPP
- Legal Liability of Physicians
- Scope of Practice
- Delegation and Supervision of Duties
- Prescriptive Authority
- Billing for NPP Services
The guide also includes credentialing information, sample job descriptions, waiver requests, billing guidelines, case studies, and more.
