Enhanced care with telehealth: Billing and coding best practices and lessons learned

The rapid and fragmented rollout of telehealth regulatory changes brought about by COVID-19 has opened up options to remote care. However, it has left many providers confused about billing and coding requirements and there has been little operational guidance to ensure the best use of telehealth technologies.

During this hour-long webinar, clinical, billing, and telehealth experts will share insights into how to successfully implement virtual care within a practice, plus help ensure you are applying the right strategies to optimize reimbursement.

After this webinar, you will know how to:

  • Establish a telehealth workflow that supports care continuity, patient engagement, and patient satisfaction
  • Develop and communicate telehealth processes and resources to ensure the best possible telehealth visit
  •  Identify potential coding and documentation gaps that may lead to resubmits or denials
  • Understand the changing telehealth billing landscape and where to find the latest information
