NEW! Audio-Only Requirements for Medicare Advantage
Consistent with Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requirements, effective immediately for all Medicare Advantage plans, including DSNP plans, we require care providers to bill audio-only telehealth visits using audio-only codes. For Medicaid and Individual and Group Market health plan members, eligible care providers can bill for telehealth services performed using either interactive audio-video or audio only, except in cases where we have explicitly denoted the need for interactive audio-video, such as with PT/OT/ST, while a patient is at home.
