About Course

Reporting of telehealth/telemedicine services has exploded during the PHE not without concerns. There have been several government audits that have found telehealth services reported incorrectly without supporting documentation. This presentation will focus on the different types of telehealth services and documentation to support billing those services. Providers and patients have embraced using telehealth services for ongoing care. We will also look to the future of telehealth services after the pandemic ends. CMS has made some significant changes that will continue after the pandemic but many issues remain a concern for providing ongoing care for the elderly population.

Areas Covered in the Session:

  • The time frame for ending the PHE/pandemic
  • Compare previously allowed telehealth services with current telehealth services allowed during the pandemic as well as temporary telehealth services allowed by CMS

  • Expansion of supervision guidelines during and after the pandemic
  • Reporting codes 99441-99443 versus G2012, G2252
