You can bill the patient but no insurance is going to pay. The physicians may not want to bill the patient and just put this down as an expense of doing business
I suggest explaining to the patient that she/he needs to bring someone to interpret for them. That this is their responsibility, not the physician's. Tell them you won't charge for the interpreter this time but it is an expense they will be billed for on future visits and quote them the amount they will be charged.
