Changes to the CMS physician fee schedule taking effect in January allow providers to bill for common behaviors, including texting their colleagues to coordinate patient care. In a nutshell, providers can finally get reimbursed for things they've been doing for years.
Join us for a lively discussion about what these codes actually mean in practice and how to put the right technology in place to make it easy for providers to remotely treat, monitor and communicate with patients, consult with one another, and bill for it all. We'll also discuss how the use of Telehealth services reduces burn-out among providers and increases overall job satisfaction because they spend more time with patients and less time documenting.
The categories of Telehealth codes we'll focus on include:
- Remote Patient Monitoring
- Virtual Check-Ins
- Interprofessional Internet Consultation
These CMS codes impact organizations across the continuum of care, including hospitals, behavioral health organizations, chronic care management providers, skilled nursing facilities, home health agencies, dialysis clinics, physician practices, specialty hospitals, employers, and more.
