Electronic E/M Is Here: Earn Revenue for Virtual Consults, Visits, and Remote Monitoring

Presented on: Wednesday, June 26, 2019 | 1:00–2:00 p.m. EST

Presented by: Betsy Nicoletti, CPC

Effective January 1, CMS covers interprofessional consults performed by a specialist who does not see the patient; doctors and qualified healthcare professionals who create the related referrals or documentation reviews will be reimbursed for their work. In addition, CMS now covers “communications-based” check-ins that are conducted on the phone, through a practice’s portal, or via other telecommunication methods. One of the nation’s largest health insurers has already adopted Medicare’s policies, and you can expect more payers to follow suit. In addition, Medicare will cover more remote physiologic monitoring codes (three new and one revised). However, the rules for the codes are tricky, and Medicare has promised to scrutinize utilization for signs that practices are improperly reporting these services.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Meet the documentation, coding, and reporting requirements for interprofessional consults, referrals, and documentation reviews (99446–99449 and 99451–99452)
  • Meet the documentation, coding, and reporting requirements for Medicare’s new virtual encounter and image or video review service (G2010 and G2012)
  • Understand the communication methods that are appropriate for the codes
  • Capture patient consent every time
  • Bonus: Report the one revised and three new remote physiological monitoring codes (99091, 99453–99454, and 99457)
