Incident to billing is one of the most common mistakes a group practice can make. Physicians are able to bill certain services as “incident to” the physician’s services, resulting in reimbursement at 100% of the Medicare physician fee schedule for nonphysician provider services. This presentation will go through the ins and outs of compliant, incident to billing, and documentation requirements. This presentation will also review common misunderstandings and billing mistakes using real-world examples.
