Effective January 1, CMS covers interprofessional consults performed by a specialist who does not see the patient; doctors and qualified healthcare professionals who create the related referrals or documentation reviews will be reimbursed for their work. In addition, CMS now covers “communications-based” check-ins that are conducted on the phone, through a practice’s portal, or via other telecommunication methods.
One of the nation’s largest health insurers has already adopted Medicare’s policies, and you can expect more payers to follow suit. In addition, Medicare will cover more remote physiologic monitoring codes (three new and one revised). However, the rules for the codes are tricky, and Medicare has promised to scrutinize utilization for signs that practices are improperly reporting these services.
Join expert speaker Betsy Nicoletti, CPC, for this 60-minute webinar to learn how to earn the revenue you’re due for these electronic E/M services. Also join Nicoletti at the end of the webinar for a live Q&A session!
