General Compliance Question of the Week

Question:

If a nurse uses a glucometer for a patient, can that be reimbursed?

Answer:

If this service is performed in a clinic setting, it can be billed incident to the physician. If this is performed in a facility setting (i.e., emergency department), it is billable on the facility claim (UB).
