Interpreter Services-State Medicaid

WI Medicaid recently provided notification they would reimburse for interpreter services. Are any organizations moving forward with billing for this service? Will you bill all payers for this knowing that they will deny or reject claims with the T1013 CPT code? Has anyone successfully implemented a process of billing their state Medicaid program for these services while ensuring patients would not receive a charge for the interpreter service. In WI, they will reimburse per 15 minutes of time. We are awaiting the FAQ from their recorded sessions for further direction but eager to hear how others have dealt with the various state Medicaid policies related. 


  • We just set up this code for Medicaid and no other payers and placed it as $0.01 charge. Would love to hear what the FAQ responds with. Thanks!
