Billing for Telehealth Encounters: An Introductory Guide on Fee-for-Service

As it did last year, the Center for Connected Health Policy (CCHP) is providing this informational billing guide to assist those who have questions regarding telehealth billing. The guide is primarily about Medicare fee-for-service billing as policies vary from state- to-state for Medicaid and commercial payers. The purpose of the guide is to clarify:

• telehealth billing and how to get reimbursed
• current legislation dictating billing requirements
• requirements applicable during calendar year 2021
• the requirements relevant only during the periods of PHE extensions
• what may occur post-PHE
