HRS Encourages Payment for Audio Visits
April 10, 2020
On April 6, Medicare posted an expansion to billing for telehealth services allowing greater flexibility for physicians. While the evaluation and management (E/M) codes can be billed as telehealth services when audio and video are provided, audio-only codes are not billable as E/M services. In those cases, physicians must bill using the telemedicine codes. HRS is working to correct that payment disparity.
