It’s been more than a year since Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law legislation that established a clear framework for telemedicine in Texas. But just how clear is telemedicine to you, particularly when treating Medicaid patients?
For example, are you aware that updated benefit policy language on telemedicine and telehealth for Medicaid managed care organizations went into effect Oct. 1?
Do you understand how to be paid for a Medicaid telemedicine visit? Do you know the procedure codes and modifiers, or documentation requirements for such a visit?
If you answered no to any of those questions, you might want to register for a live, free webinar on telemedicine and telehealth services presented by the Texas Medicaid & Healthcare Partnership (TMHP).
The webinar, scheduled for 2 to 3 pm (CT) Friday, Oct. 26, will include information and reference materials that can improve your telemedicine experience with Medicaid.
Topics to be covered include:
- Places of service;
- Provider types;
- Procedure codes and modifiers; and
- Documentation requirements.
More information about the webinar and Medicaid in Texas can be found on the TMHP’s website or by calling (800) 925-9126.
Of course, the Texas Medical Association’s website also has plenty of information about telemedicine and telehealth.
