Do the math – 15% of an office visit is not that much in the overall picture. Calculate the income the physician could earn if he/she is able to be off site seeing patients at other facilities. Calculate the savings that result from the physician not having to see all new patients. If NPs have their own provider number, it will help avoid situations which could be fraudulent. The scare of an audit and having to repay Medicare and additionally pay a large fine is enough to balance the loss of 15%.
