Depending on the patients insurance, you can bill for this service. I have

LEP persons that are blind or deaf, under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation

Hello List,

We recently received a prescription for a patient who is deaf. She has
requested interpreter services. Are we required to provide this? Can we bill
for the cost of the service? Does anyone have any experience with this type
of situation?

Thanks in advance for your help!
