Incident-to self-service Tool

Incident-to self-service tool


The purpose of the incident-to self-service tool is to assist providers with understanding the CMS Part B incident-to requirements and to apply the rules to their individual given patient/provider circumstances and to understand documentation requirements


Use of this tool is not a guarantee of coverage nor meant to imply coverage, but rather is intended to be a tool to assist providers in understanding coverage criteria and applying that criteria based on self-reported circumstances of a given patient encounter. Medicare will continue to require that all documentation and coverage requirements are met.
