Session overview: With the recent changes we have all endured come opportunities for expanding your patient care reach via traditional telehealth and via Virtual Communication Services (VCS). But they are very different services though seemingly related. The documentation, coding, and billing rules differ greatly and this session will outline how RHCs in particular, can maximize reimbursement while maintaining compliance with CMS and other payer billing rules. We will describe which service(s) are typically patient initiated versus being pre-scheduled as well as describe Virtual Check-ins and how to capture revenue when patients upload audio and/or video ("store-and-forward") into a patient communication portal. Different carriers want different codes on different claim forms and may pay differently from each other. What services are "approved" for audio only or distant site telehealth services will be discussed.

  • Attendees will be aware of the CPT and HCPCS-II code options for online digital assessments, virtual communication services (VCS), and telehealth. 
  • Attendees will be able to adjust codes used for telehealth and VCS to Medicare billing guidelines for RHC/FQHC. 
  • Attendees will be a able to track the inevitable changes to these subjects and their associated billing rules before, during, and after the COVID-19 PHE.
