Thread: "Incident To" question

    Default "Incident To" question

    AAPC: Back to School
    Would anyone know if you can bill out Physical Therapy services as "Incident to" if the therapist is contracted by us and is doing the PT in our office while the Physician is in-office?? Or would this be considered double-dipping? My Doc feels he should be reimbursed for his review of care plan and certification up and beyond an E&M visit...

    Default Medicare Benefits Policy Manual

    You may want to review section 230.5 under chapter 15 of the Medicare Benefits Policy Manual. "PT, OT, SLP Services Provided Incident to the Services of Physician and NPPs".
