Effective Utilization of PAs and NPs in the Orthopaedic Practice: Hot Topics for 2017
Saturday, April 22, 2017
12:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Physician assistants (PAs) and nurse practitioners (NPs) have been shown to provide quality, cost effective care and have become integral members of the orthopaedic workforce. Yet, these providers are often underutilized and misunderstood.

This session will dispel the myths and urban legends regarding the utilization of PAs and NPs by providing detailed information on scope of practice, billing and reimbursement rules (with a focus on Medicare), and strategies for maximal utilization in a variety of settings. Hot Topics include "incident-to" billing, split/shared visit billing, billing for x-ray interpretation, fracture care, and concurrent surgery. Federal fraud enforcement trends for services provided by PAs/NPs will also be covered.

Learning Objectives
  • Describe efficiencies and opportunities to maximize utilization and ROI of PAs and NPs as providers in an orthopaedic practice.
  • Avoid allegations of fraud and abuse by implementing billing and reimbursement rules for PAs and NPs.
  • Dispel myths and misunderstandings regarding the utilization of PAs and NPs.
  • Access regulatory resources specific to PA and NP practice.
