    i also want to know about any texas indy providers. have there been any that have started a home agency. i heard there is a new rule saying you have to have 80k in the bank before they let you run one now. is that true? i haven't read elsewhere about that so i'm skeptical.

    some one...anyone....from texas....let me know what's the deal.

    also let me know how long it took to start up after the requirements. how long before finances start coming in, and how many employees you have?

    I don't know about other states, but in WI. we, as independent nurses certified with the state, providing private-duty, don't bill Medicare, only Medicaid.

    I'm an Independent Nurse Provider (RN) with Medi-Cal (California's Medicare). In California, you do not need to be a NP. I needed a certain number of hospital hours in my field (Peds) in the previous two years in order to apply for my INP #.
    Medi-Cal needs a Plan of Treatment (POT) signed by the MD and a Treatment of Authorization (TAR) for a patient, and they then give that patient a certain # of billable nursing hours. You take care of the patient, and bill Medi-Cal. About 500years later, they'll pay you (just kidding - but, plan on 6 months from starting the paperwork for your INP to getting your first paycheck - absolutely NOT kidding about that!)
    i'm looking for INP provider.if you can give me more information and are you working as your own?

    Good Day,

    Well IM an LVN and I just submitted my application to Medi-Cal for my provider number,
    I formed a Corporation that I will be working under I have my NPI,insurances business address phone lines,medical supplies etc. etc.but in the meantime while waiting on my approval from medi-cal...Im learning how to fill out and submit TAR request and making sure I have my RN in place to do my case managment,

    But what Im looking into now is providing care to medi-cal and medicare patients will be great but how do I tap into that private insurance or that no insurance market A.K.A. fee for sevice patients...any advice would be appreciated

    Thanks

    Thanks for all the info so far. Im in the same boat, wanting to start my own home healthcare service as independent nurse contractor. I have also submitted the required docs to be Medicare certified. To be built into the system of the private insurance companies, you need to submit claims to them. They will pick up the cost left from Medicare. I'd like to know more also on POT, TAR and sample billing to Medicare. Everything is still in grey area with me. Thanks a lot for the help.

    This thread may answer your questions on becoming Medicare/Medicaid certified, which also depends on what state you work in.

    I too am trying to get my INP number. Any help on how to get started or just to tutor me thru would be greatly appreciated. So far help from other nurses has not worked, maybe because they think I'm trying to steal potential jobs. haha
