As long as you have all components of incident to met. The physician has seen the patient, has ordered the test, and is present on site while the patient is being seen.

I understand Medicare now requires an audiologist bill under his or her own NPI # effective 10/1/2008 and therefore, billing E/M incident-to physician services would be inappropriate. Can an audiologist now bill E/M services directly?
