COVID-19 Reimbursement Depends on What Was Performed: Telehealth or Communication Technology-Based Service?

Even though telehealth codes and regulations have been in place for many years, and even though the American Medical Association and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services have recently created codes and regulations for health care professionals to provide communication technology-based services(CTBS) to their patients, most wound/ulcer management professionals have not incorporated these services into their practices until the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE). However, confusion now reigns about correct terminology to use, about correct codes to report, and about what payment to expect. This webinar will outline the difference between the 2020 Medicare fee-for-service regulations and the temporary COVID-19 waivers.
- - Differentiate between telemedicine, telehealth, and CTBS
- - Identify the temporary COVID-19 affiliated reimbursement waivers for telehealth and CTBS
- - Describe the appropriate codes to report and payment to expect for telehealth and CTBS during the COVID-19 PHE
