The Latest Changes to CMS’s Physician Supervision Requirements and How You Can Meet Them

Physician supervision is a perennial area of confusion for those who serve Medicare beneficiaries, as both Congress and CMS keep changing the rules. Questions as to whether non-physician practitioners (NPPs) can satisfy the supervisory requirements and whether auditors can go back in time to verify proper physician supervision continue to perplex providers.

Join this informative webinar, where expert Duane Abbey, Ph.D. will provide answers to these important questions and many more concerning physician supervision in provider-based clinics. The specific requirements under the law today, as well as affirmative steps hospitals need to take to ensure compliance will be discussed.

  • Review of the provider-based rule (PBR) and the physician supervision requirements
