Incident-To Billing from A-Z


Format: On-Demand Webinar
Presenter: Kathi Carney, CPC, CPMA, CHC
Duration: 60 minutes



As practices strive to be more efficient, the use of NPP (non-physician practitioners) has become more prevalent than ever before. Often, practices are not sure whether to credential these providers or utilize the incident-to rules. We will go through multiple examples and specific scenarios for common sense solutions. Practice will gain the knowledge they need surrounding the do’s and don’ts of incident- to billing to help minimize the risk involved.

CMS has temporarily eased restrictions for incident-to billing. This makes it possible for non-physician providers to conduct and be paid for telehealth visits while patients are complying with social distancing recommendations. Although requirements have been lessened, you must still have a strong handle on what is and isn’t allowed in order to successfully bill incident-to telehealth services.
