Telehealth Coding Services

Telemedicine is the provision of healthcare services to patients in a non-face-to-face manner utilizing technological tools such as webcams and telephones.

In a healthcare environment where providers are encouraged to utilize technological tools, provided online and over the phone, to maintain safe social distancing, many physicians find themselves rendering Telehealth Services for the first time.  Even for providers who have performed Telemedicine in the past, changes in guidelines and rules for submitting Telemedicine Services for reimbursement create additional challenges to navigate.
