So I am an FNP student but this really doesn't fit in the student section. I am working on a paper and wanted to reach out and get some input from those who are out there practicing.
My question is: Medicare participation and billing requirements state that an APRN, or NPP as CMS calls them, have a collaborative agreement with a physician in order to participate/bill Medicare. How does this work in states with full practice authority? Can you still see Medicare patients without having a collaborative agreement? Or do you have one just for Medicare patients?
Thanks so much!
