    I've found that HCPCS code T1013 (Sign language or oral interpretive services, per 15 minutes) is accepted by many private insurers. Although 'T' codes are developed primarily for Mcaid administration, they are often preferred by other entities in lieu of an unlisted code.

    I agree T1013 is what we send to all our payers.
