I am curious about how LCSW are able to bill for services in Georgia. I have been doing some research online with CMS and would appreciate any help those more experienced could give me in this area. Are LCSW able to provide services on their own without a physician? Do all services given by a LCSW have to be incident to a medical physician?

THank you again!

THank you very much for the response!

2 questions:
1. Can the LCSW bill the G0507 code? Is this billed incident to?
2. In regards to incident to, could the LCSW ever bill incident to the PCP?

Thanks so much!
