Abstract

The resource-based relative value scale is used to quantify work for reimbursement of services in the Medicare Fee Schedule. This pilot study explored use of the resource-based relative value scale for services provided by nurse practitioners. Estimation of relative work values for office visits by nurse practitioners was consistent with the Medicare Fee Schedule. Content analysis revealed that nurse practitioners provide additional services including comprehensive patient evaluation and education and attendance to social factors. Future research is needed to examine systems that identify and reimburse nurse practitioners for their services.
