Incident to services in an ASC

    Default Incident to services in an ASC
    Medical Coding Books
    Does anyone know how the 'Incident to' applies to the professional services performed by a PA out of an ASC? I know that when services are performed in the clinic setting the Physician has to be on site. Does the same apply with the service is performed in an ASC? Any help would be great, I have not been able to locate any direct information from Medicare or First Coast.

    Thank you,

    Incident to rules cannot be applied outside of the physician office setting. So in the ASC setting the PA must bill under his own number.
