Billing Telehealth by Time

Billing Telehealth by Time

April 2, 2020

Question:
Can we bill telehealth visits by time alone?

Answer:

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.
