Billing Telehealth by Time

Billing Telehealth by Time

April 2, 2020

Can we bill telehealth visits by time alone?

Yes, if indicated by the code billed. Telemedicine visits have the same documentation requirements as any face-to-face visit, according to the code the provider chooses. Of course medical necessity is the overarching criterion for all visits.
