" "Incident to" " and " "Direct Billing" " are Medicare concepts for non-physician provider billing. These two billing methods have very different requirements and Medicare reimbursement varies based on the two billing methods. Understanding the differences is critical for the medical practice -- to ensure accurate reporting of services to Medicare and to ensure that the practice receives the reimbursement that the practice deserves.
