We all new it was coming... the updated Medicare billing changes in regards to Telehealth services moving forward from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Center of Connected Health Policy released their Billing for Telehealth Encounters - An Intrductory Guide to Fee-for-Service to explain how to bill Medicare for Telehealth visits.
If you accept Medicare in your private practice, it is imperative that you take note to prevent claim denials, proper reimbursement and potential Medicare fraud. Commercial insurances will generally (not always) follow Medicare guidelines, so I suspect we will see similar updates coming from them in the not too distant future.
