    Question Medicare replacements versus traditional Medicare when billing incident-to?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi - i was wondering if anyone had any information about billing incident-to for Medicare replacements. I cannot find anything that specifically states that it's the same or any different...

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    We treat it the same as Medicare. For example HealthNet Sr. Care follows Mcr guide lines call them at 800-289-2818. Attending must be present when Resident sees a Pt. that has Fed-Ins. Plan and use the GC-modifier... Not sure this helps but this is what we do.
