Telemedicine in the time of COVID-19
Re-recorded July 15th, 2020
The coding and reimbursement rules for telehealth changed fast in March. Congress passed a law relaxing certain telemedicine restrictions during the period of a government state of emergency. CMS released rules ten days later with instructions on billing for telehealth, and reminding practices of other non-face-to-face services that can be reported. Some private payers are following suit. This webinar will describe the new telehealth Medicare rules. Join us to learn about CPT coding for telehealth, diagnosis coding, and the type of communication that can be used for telehealth services.
After the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Find the CPT and HCPCS codes that may be reported via telehealth
- Describe the updated CMS Medicare rules
- Select accurate diagnosis codes for COVID-19
We have posted a Telemedicine FAQ page as well. Please check that regularly for updates that may occur after the recording of this webinar.
