Since we posted our Guide to Telehealth Reimbursement, CMS has made a few major changes in regards to billing for telehealth.
On March 30th, CMS issued a new rule affecting telehealth billing. More than 80 additional services, including inpatient visits, can now be performed remotely via telehealth and will be reimbursed.
Codes to Use When Billing For Telehealth During COVID-19
To bill for telehealth that's being specially permitted during this emergency, you should now use modifier code -95 and the facility and place of service code that you would have used if the visit had taken place face-to-face. This is retroactively effective as of March 1, 2020.
More details about the changes can be found on the CMS website.
