How to file telehealth claims

This new year brings new billing codes. For those of you who are starting to see patients virtually, we've got good news:

As of Jan 1, 2017, there's a new way to file telehealth claims, and it's easier than ever. 

How to File a Nutrition Telehealth Claim

Effective for services dates from 1/1/17

  1.  Use your standard procedure codes (e.g., CPT 97802 or 97803) 
  2.  Set the location of the appointment to telehealth (02) - new!
  3.  Keep the rest of the claim the same as before

So, what changed? 

Previously you had to file claims with a modifier, now you just use telehealth as a location.

Note: if you have any claims from 2015, they'll still need to be filed in the old style.

As always, let us know if you have any questions.
