In 2017, you CAN get paid for telemedicine (non-face-to-face) services by both Medicare and Private Payers. The new codes and payment guidelines being introduced cross multiple specialties and expand reimbursement for a variety of non-face-to-face services that you might not expect to be included (many of which you probably provide now and are just not being paid for).
In addition to the new codes being introduced next year by Medicare, 32 states now have laws requiring private payers to pay for telemedicine services. The problem is that correctly coding and billing for telemedicine is complicated, but get it right and the financial reward can be significant - but you have to know how….
That’s where national coding expert, Catrena Smith, CCS, CCS-P, CPC, CIC, CPC-I, CRC, CHTS-PW, comes in. During a 60-minute online training session, Catrena will walk you through exactly how to correctly code and bill for telemedicine (non-face-to-face) services so you can finally get paid more of what you deserve.
