FAQs – Medical Certification for PFL Care Claims
A Nurse Practitioner is treating my care recipient. Can the treating Nurse Practitioner certify my Claim for Paid Family Leave (PFL) Benefits?
A Nurse Practitioner can certify for all medical conditions within his/her scope of practice. However, to certify a claim for PFL Benefits, the nurse practitioner must certify on a DE 2509F that he/she performed a physical examination and collaborated with a physician and/or surgeon. The nurse practitioner must complete, print and sign and attach the “Nurse Practitioner Certification for Paid Family Leave Benefits, DE 2509F” to the claim for PFL benefits, DE 2501F.
