Can I do and bill a TCA along with a management if I am not doing the referral in that visit? For instance, a patient with diabetes and back pain who at this moment does not need diabetic educator or physio but probably need in the future, can I do the TCA without the referrals or should I wait until the patient needs the referrals?Can a Psychologist be considered a health care alied in a GPMP?
1. The requirement is to engage the collaborating providers not to refer to them. Although, I would bill 721 and bill 723 later when the services are required.
2. Yes, psychologists can.
