2017 Medicare Telehealth Service Updates

February 14, 2017

CMS recently updated guidance on modifications to Medicare telehealth reimbursement and coverage for 2017. Directed toward distant site practitioners, the resource covers requirements for telehealth reimbursement and provides a list of currently approved Medicare telehealth codes. Additional covered services in 2017 include End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) services similar to existing covered ESRD services, advanced care planning CPT codes, and critical care consultations using new G-codes.

For services furnished after Jan. 1, 2017, to indicate that a service was furnished from a distant site, physicians and practitioners should use the new Place of Service (POS) code 02: Telehealth. To learn more about billing and payment for telehealth services in 2017, click on the link below.
