Telehealth visit coding requirements clarification by CMS

Excer pt from recent email release...

"Medicare has clarifi ed its prior guidance regarding the prop er way to bill for telehealth servic es during the COVID-19 pandemic. Previous guidan ce indicated that place of service (P OS) code 02 should be used f or telehealth visits with patients; the n ew guidance instead says to bill the se visits with POS code 11 a nd modifier 95. Medicare says this chan ge is intended to pay for visi ts that would have taken place in-pers on if not for the pandemic at t he same rate as if they h ad been furnished in person.

Visits billed usi ng POS code 02, as indicated in t he previous guidance, will be paid at a low er, facility rate.

Medicare’s prior guidance also indicat ed that only established patients could be se en for telehealth visits; now any Medica re patient may be seen via teleheal th and have the visit reimbursed at t he normal E/M rate by billing as describ ed above.

Finally, Medicare is now allowing t he reporting of telehealth services rendered v ia telephone only when provided to Medica re beneficiaries (CPT codes 99441 – 9944 3).
