Keep in mind: CMS notes that Medicare beneficiaries “are eligible for telehealth services only if they are presented from an originating sitelocated in a rural health professional shortage area or in a county outside of a Metropolitan Statistical Area.”
Allowable telehealth services include certain consults, office visits, psychotherapy, end-stage renal disease, and pharmacologic managementcodes, and you should always append modifier GT (Via interactive audio and video telecommunications system) to the applicable CPT code.
