Message from the National Council for Mental Wellbeing:

Proposed updates to the 2023 Physician Fee Schedule would expand access to mental health and substance use services and allow some providers more flexibility in treating Medicare enrollees. Reserve a spot today to join the National Council for Mental Wellbeing for a special webinar discussing the “incident to” billing provisions and what they mean for providers.

Title: ‘Incident To’ Provisions of the Proposed 2023 Physician Fee Schedule
Time: August 16, 2022, at 12:00 pm ET

  • The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is proposing updates to the 2023 Physician Fee Schedule that would create an exception to the direct supervision requirement of “incident to” billing to allow for general supervision, which would allow certain mental health providers to be reimbursed without the physician or non-physician practitioners on-site requirement.
  • Medicare’s Physician Fee Schedule, updated yearly, contains a comprehensive listing of the maximum fees physicians and other providers may be reimbursed under fee-for-service in Medicare.

In this webinar, participants will be provided:

  • Overview of “incident to” billing in Medicare;
  • Summary of the “incident to” proposed rule changes for 2023;
  • Analysis of the impact and implications to providers;
  • Context for the applicability to dual eligible individuals; and
  • Dedicated Q&A period.
