Your Procentive Staff
From the Center for Connected Health Policy, CMS just released new guidelines for telehealth, including some changes for what I prefer to call telehavioral services.
The guidelines include,
"Beginning July 1, 2019, the SUPPORT Act will add the enrollee’s home as an eligible originating site and remove the originating site geographic limitation on existing eligible telehealth originating sites (including the home) when treating for a substance use disorder or co-occurring mental health disorder through telehealth."
So, at least for SUD/co-occurring treatment, things are continuing to evolve.
Have anyone billed Mental Health Telemedicine claims to Health Partners? Do you bill with modifier and if so what modifier code is billed with cpt code?
We have CD & MH PHP and IOP programs at our agency how are all of you handling these programs amidst COVID? Is there any way to provide telehealth services via zoom for a group setting for these programs and still be able to bill for it? Our clients need for the service to continue but the only way we can continue is if there was a telehealth way. Any thoughts or ideas of how maybe your agency is handling it, is greatly appreciated
Procentive is, wisely I think, preparing to offer a telehealth platform. This is very timely, given the potential disruptions of COVID 19. MHConcierge has a one hour Board-approved CE video that can help you get ready for telehealth, with info specific to MN but relevant to other states: https://bit.ly/330GbPh
We have a therapist who only does Telehealth sessions and so we are unable to get patient signatures on Treatment Plans. How do other clinics handle this?
