The phrase “incident-to” is used in two very different ways in the Social Security Act (SSA). For physicians and practitioners, it refers to “incident-to billing”—that is, physician coding and billing for subordinate staff services. For hospitals, the phase refers to “incident-to services”—that is, the major benefit category for hospitals under the Medicare program. Hospitals are paid for services that are incident-to services provided by physicians. Confused? You’re not alone.
