Reimbursement & Regulatory Policies for PAs and NPs

PAs and NPs have always been at the forefront of healthcare delivery by increasing patient access to care, improving care coordination and driving quality outcomes. This tutorial will help PAs and NPs better understand their impact on the financial bottom line of their practice through maximizing legitimate reimbursement and reducing the risks of fraud and abuse. Each PA/NP has a responsibility to understand both the clinical and business aspects of medical practice.
