INCIDENT-TO BILLING FOR CLINICAL PHARMACIST SERVICES
REMOTE MONITORING OF MORE THAN ONE CONDITION
E/M SERVICES REQUIRING AN INTERPRETER
Some health plans, especially Medicaid plans, may cover the provision of a qualified language or sign-language interpreter if you report it with HCPCS code T1013 (sign language or oral interpretive services, per 15 minutes). Policies vary, however, with some payers requiring the interpreter to bill directly and some requiring the physician or other qualified clinician to bill for the purchased interpretation service. Under federal law, the patient can never be billed for interpretation services, but there is an income tax deduction available to clinicians for unreimbursed interpretation.
