Get your specific telehealth coding questions answered by joining nationally recognized coding and training expert, Leonta (Lee) Williams, MBA, RHIA, CCS, CCDS, CPC, CPCO, CEMC, CHONC, CRC, during her online session.

As of April 1st, Medicare (and many private payers) will now reimburse for more than 80 new services as telehealth. The ability to get paid for more telehealth services is GREAT NEWS for your practice. However, the only way you are actually going to get paid is to be able to successfully utilize and apply all of the new rules and codes on your claims.

This is where Leonta can help. During her online training, you’ll receive answers to your most confusing telehealth coding and billing issues. By attending this upcoming online training, you’ll learn how to accurately and ethically increase your telehealth reimbursement, get paid faster, and avoid common compliance pitfalls using the latest April mandates from Medicare, UHC, BCBS and more.

Here are just a few of the proven telehealth and virtual care questions you’ll get expert answers to by attending this practical, 90-minute online session:

  • What are current CMS and private payer modifier requirements?
  • Should denied claims for telehealth be refiled?
  • Are some virtual services covered only with a COVID-19 related diagnosis?
