On the surface, it sounds like having non-participating provider status with Medicare is a good thing. But for NPs, is it really?
Medicare requires NPs enrolled with Medicare as a provider to accept assignment. That the rule had always taught me that NPs could not opt for “non-participating” provider status. Recently though, I’ve heard from several who are enrolled with a “non-participating” status. But is this a good thing for NPs?
That’s why I sat down with Don Self to review the whole issue and discover what advantages there are for Nurse Practitioners who opt for non-participating status.
In this video podcast, Don talks about just what it is and what, if any advantage there is for NPs. Take a list, as this may not be what you think.
