4/30/20 - CMS has made a big announcement on rehab services during COVID-19
For weeks now, everyone has been waiting to see if Medicare would open the door to PT, OT, and SLP telehealth. The good news is that as of this blog post (4/30), they finally have.
The guidance seems to be similar to e-visit billing with some minor exceptions. The place of service code should be the same as when provided in the office and a 95 & GP modifier should be used.
Many have been advocating for this for weeks as the crisis has gone on. This advocacy has paid off.
The Bottom Line
This is literally hot off the press, more information will be coming forth.
