Clinical psychology interns are students and the services are not billable (as psychologists). However, you may be able to capture the time as "technician" time, but I'd directly address that with your Medicare carrier.
The term "fellow" for psychology folks is quite different from Resident Fellows (who are MDs). Therefore, I'd reach out to determine if this "fellow" has a license to practice psychology in your state. If the answer is no, then those interpretation and administration services, too, would not be billable.
Personally, my guess is that any service provided by a student, intern or fellow of psychology is not billable. If, and only if a service is actually performed by a licensed psychologist (e.g., interpretation, assessment, etc), then it becomes billable. Otherwise your practice eats the costs of care.
I do hope this helps. Just know that Medicare's Teaching Physician Guidelines primarily relate to medical school graduates (licensed doctors) in residency. In health care we toss around the same terms, but they have very different meanings in each discipline.
