New 2019 CPT Codes for Telehealth Reimbursement

Thank you for your interest in this article. This specialized content was made available for a brief period to draw attention to the two TBHI reimbursement training programs. That content has now been shifted back to those training programs.

For detailed information about how you can get reimbursed for your telehealth services, you may want to consider participating in one of these two courses (or both):

Definitions are given to help the practitioner become familiar with telehealth billing essential terms and their meanings. Issues related to procedures, approved telehealth modifier codes, permitted treatment sites, types of patient diagnoses and licensure requirements for professionals are examined.

Practical suggestions are at the core of this training experience. A range of support documentation and materials are included to effectively equip you to maximize reimbursement for telehealth.

  1. I am looking for a 90834 VSee code for online psychotherapy. Is there anything beyond 90834 for the CPT code that needs to be included in the bill?

    • Marjorie, You are wise to seek additional information. Several other factors need to be considered. You may want to attend the inexpensive webinar that we’ll have on this topic this coming Tuesday at 11 am Pacific. (It will be fully recorded in case you can’t attend the live event, too.) Maximizing Telehealth Reimbursement: New Billing, Coding & Credentialing Strategies for 2019. The information will thereafter be made available on-demand and posted on this page. A single CME or CE is available with this event as well. See details at the bottom of that webinar description page to get live CME or CE credit.

      If you’d like even more information, TBHI offers a 3-hour course that covers telehealth reimbursement issues from soup to nuts. See this page for details: Telemental Health and Telebehavioral Health Reimbursement Strategies: Increasing Authorization & Payment

      Also, VSEE is a video platform company. They don’t establish or deal with reimbursement codes. Rather, they provide an excellent video platform for many types of telehealth applications. In the United States, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is the entity that establishes healthcare reimbursement codes for the entire country. Have a peek at their website for a ton of very boring and complex information. 🙂
