Incident to Services
If an established patient sees the Physician Assistant for a chronic problem and med refills, say, hypertension, but while in the office, mentions a new problem that the Physician Assistant has not treated before, say an earache, can the visit be billed as incident to?

re: Incident to Services
The Medicare guidelines aren't specific enough to answer that question with a citation. In my opinion, changes to an existing plan could be billed incident to, but not a new problem at the same visit.
In my opinion.
