Medicare may not pay for the service. Delegation of Duties Health care delivery by proxy is an area that medicaid and medicare set traps on billing. Even though a paraprofessional can legally perform a given service under the terms of a state's medical practice act, it does not mean that Medicare will pay for the service.
