Question Incident to billing

Best answers
Hello - Incident-to is a Medicare concept. Private payers may do something that they call incident-to but you can't assume the private payer follows Medicare's rules. Finally, some private payers do not allow anything that resembles billing for an NPP's services under the doctor's NPI. You'll need to check the guidelines for each plan.
