Join our consultants from BKD as they outline the updated coding and billing instructions for Part B and RHC settings, as well as potential reimbursement and cost report impact.

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued guidance on March 27, 2020, March 30, 2020 and April 17, 2020 as part of the Medicare and Medicaid Programs for the Policy and Regulatory Revisions in Response to the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency: Interim Final Rule, and Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. This legislation further expands the use of telemedicine and virtual communication technology to broaden patient access to health care considering the COVID-19 public health emergency. The guidance also removes restrictions for RHC settings.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review current CMS COVID-19 revised telemedicine instructions for RHC
  • Understand telemedicine or virtual communications service descriptions, codes and documentation criteria
  • Forecast potential revenue impact and review cost reporting criteria
