    Yes, you need an NPI number, but also need to be certified with your state in order to be able to bill your hours to Medicaid. And, just a notebook would NOT cut it in WI. You need a nurses note that covers a full assessment of your client, it is a skilled nurse visit. You may be an independent nurse, self-employed, but still have to abide by your states requirements, and the nurse practice act. One more thing, in the event of an audit you better have more than a notebook and log of your hours. The state can recoup money !!
    And, the poc that the family has in the home...was created by a nurse and submitted to the MD for approval and signature. Good luck !!

    I will send you a few choices of nurse notes, vent and non-vent. I have not billed an insurance company, so I'm no help in that regard

    Hi.
    I am an independent Medicaid provider in NYS. On the cases that I work we keep only a note book with our notes. But one of the nurses mentioned that she made her own flow sheets. Can you please send me your choices of nurse notes, vent and non-vent so that I will have an example and, perhaps, can create mine.

    You'll need to create your own forms or purchase pre-printed forms.

    The thing is that some states have posted forms for private duty nurses on the health department website, but NY does not have those forms on their health department website. I am sure that most PDN's don't buy the forms, because most of them are not what you need, thats only junk. The problem is that i can't find the forms i need in the state of NY, and i tried looking but no luck!!! I do know the names of which forms i need, anywhere i call, nobody has any clue what is Private Duty Nursing,
