In order for services of a nonphysician practitioner to be covered as incident to the services of a physician, the services must meet all of the requirements for coverage specified in Â§Â§60 through 60.1. For example, the services must be an integral, although incidental, part of the physicianâ€™s personal professional services, and they must be performed under the physicianâ€™s direct supervision.
Direct supervision in the office setting does not mean that the physician must be present in the same room with his or her aide. However, the physician must be present in the office suite and immediately available to provide assistance and direction throughout the time the aide is performing services.
Start with section 60. There is other information throughout this chapter regarding "incident-to" requirements
