Telehealth services

Physician Practice Insider, April 5, 2016

On March 11, CMS released a change request to display the list of telehealth services that were once available through the manual updates to be displayed via a web link going forward. CMS is also adding certified registered nurse anesthetists to the list of Medicare practitioners who may bill for covered telehealth services. Lastly, the telehealth language has been removed from Pub 100.02, Medicare Benefit Policy Manual, Chapter 15, Section 270, and a reference added in text to see Pub 100.04, Chapter 12, Medicare Claims Processing Manual, section 190, for further information regarding telehealth services.
