PART 1: 2019 Telemedicine Distant & Originating Site Rule Edits
Billing and getting paid for telemedicine services is complex and confusing. And 2019’s CMS Related Change Notice made it worse by implementing further regulations related to Medicare’s telemedicine distant and originating site designations.
One of the key reasons telehealth claims get rejected and payments denied is a lack of compliance with the distant and originating site designations rules.

This is where coding and billing expert, Stephanie Thomas, CPC, CANPC, can help. In only 45 minutes, you’ll receive a plain-English breakdown of both distant and originating site telemedicine regulations. And, you’ll learn exactly how to apply these rules in real-world situations to improve your compliance and pay up.
PART 2: MD Offers Coding, Billing and Payment Pearls for Telemed
Telemedicine coding, billing and compliance includes a variety of non-face-to-face services that you might not expect to be eligible for reimbursement – many of which you probably provide now and are just not being paid for.
The good news is that in addition to Medicare reimbursing for certain telemedicine services, the majority of states now have laws requiring private payers to also pay for them. The problem is that telemedicine coding, billing and compliance is complicated, but get it right and the financial reward can be significant – but you MUST know how …
That’s where telemedicine documentation guidelines physician coding expert, Michael Stearns, MD, CPC, CFPC, CRC, comes in. During a 60-minute online training session, Dr. Stearns will walk you through telemedicine coding, billing and compliance for non-face-to-face services so you can get paid more of what you deserve – and protect payment with documentation musts.
PART 3: Easily Manage & Get Multi-State Licenses for Telehealth
Whether you are currently providing telehealth/telemedicine services or considering them, mastering the issue of state licensure is complex and necessary. The good news is that these issues are navigable if you understand when additional licensure is needed and how to master exceptions.
Obviously, you don’t want to face criminal prosecution for the unlicensed practice of medicine or be hit with an enforcement action for practicing in another state without a license. But going through the “normal” licensing process for each state you need and managing those licenses can be a nightmare.
Although practicing across state lines can be complex, there are a variety of options available that can make your life easier and ensure your licensure compliance. In this online training, healthcare attorneys, Bradley Davidsen, Esq. and Daniel Kim, Esq., will walk you through the nuances of practicing across state lines, especially when done through telehealth/telemedicine services, while complying with state and federal regulations.
You’ll also better understand exceptions and alternatives to obtaining a full medical (or other) license in order to practice telehealth/telemedicine, as well as how to choose the most efficient method for expanding a telehealth/telemedicine practice.
