New Place of Service Code for Telehealth Services effective Jan. 1

November 30, 2016

CMS recently released guidance on the newly established place of service (POS) code specifically designed to report telehealth services. Beginning on Jan. 1, 2017, physicians and practitioners should use POS 02 when billing for telehealth services furnished at a distant site. The requirement to use the telehealth POS code will help CMS improve payment accuracy and consistency in telehealth claims submissions. The POS code for telehealth does not apply to originating sites billing the facility fee and accordingly originating sites should continue to use the POS code that applies to the type of facility where the patient is located.

CMS published guidance outlining how to properly bill for telehealth services using the new POS code.
