This session is about Telehealth/Telemedicine and other Technology care codes that begin with an explanation of the differences between the words Telehealth and Telemedicine. Used inter-changeably prior to the COVID-19 crisis, that lack of distinction between the word for the care given by a provider using audio and visual technology and the word for the concept of care using different aspects of technology is now causing confusion and chaos.
During this information-packed webinar, coding and billing expert Jill M. Young, will include a step by step explanations of the technology care codes that are currently available, so the user is familiar and comfortable using each of the codes when appropriate. Code details such as consent, who initiates the service, what are the time requirements for the service and for documentation of that time, who can perform a given set of codes, are there any frequency issues on the codes.
Confusion over the place of service and modifiers seems apparent in the coding and billing field. Diagnosis codes and sequencing are other problems that present coders and billers as they try to submit for reimbursement. The CDC has issued some coding guidance along with a new ICD10 code to be used, but sequencing continues to be an area of question. Audio and Visual requirements for telemedicine care for Medicare and other payers continue to evolve. These changes present many challenges for coders and billers.
During the webinar, Jill will share the latest information on key carriers and their acceptance of particular codes along with billing tips on certain codes that now have seen a relaxing of required elements. Medicare has continued to expand its rules of patient care during this pandemic. Find out what we know today for the technology service codes.
Billing tips on the place of service codes and what modifiers are available for use with Telehealth and which are needed for what services will also be discussed during the webinar.
