As COVID-19 cases rise across the state, physicians have been asking the Texas Medical Association about getting started with telemedicine.
That’s why TMA staff has added new tools and information to the TMA telemedicine resource center, including:
- Numerous policies, procedures, and forms;
- A chart of payer policies that includes which Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes can be billed for telemedicine; and
- A list of telemedicine vendors, including electronic health records (EHRs) vendors with integrated telemedicine products, and pricing when it was listed.
Additional resources on the telemedicine page include a white paper detailing Texas’ telemedicine laws and regulations.
TMA will be working with health plans and the Texas Department of Insurance to clarify billing procedures and payment. Look for updates in Texas Medicine Today and the TMA telemedicine resource center.
We know these are uncertain times, but TMA is here to help. Do not hesitate to reach out to TMA’s Health Information Technology Department at (800) 880-5720 or via email.
