Description

There is no consistency among the payers making coding of telemedicine confusing and challenging. It is important to understand the 2021 OIG Audits of Medicare Part B
Telehealth Services During the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency.

To accurately code for Telemedicine services, coders must understand the types of telehealth services and be aware of the rules that apply to :-

• Services recognized by the American Medical Association (AMA) included in Appendix P of the CPT code set
• Services recognized by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS),
• New and established patients
• Telemedicine exams documentation requirements/checklists for outpatient E/M visits
• Commercial vs Medicare rules and waivers.
