Controversy, confusion and contradiction are obfuscating the reporting of telehealth services, especially now during the recently extended public health emergency. There is so much inconsistency with how to report telehealth right now, between what Medicare determines you can do, and what the mix of commercial payers declare is appropriate. And then there are individual state executive orders. What is the reality of telehealth rules like place of service, modifiers, and audio and video versus audio-only options?
In the light of this maelstrom of entanglements, we asked professional coder and consultant Terry Fletcher to return to the broadcast next Tuesday, July 26, 10 a.m. Eastern.
As an added attraction, we are pleased to welcome Ernie Clevenger, the newly elected president of the Health Care Administrators Association to the broadcast.
