Telehealth Update Medicare - 2022

The listed CPT codes are covered in telehealth and changes are effective from dated on June 16, 2022

Medicare telehealth services require that the services occur over real-time audio and visual interactive telecommunications. For purposes of diagnosis, evaluation, or treatment of mental health disorders.

If the patient doesn’t have the technical capacity or the availability of real-time audio and visual interactive telecommunications, or they don’t consent to the use of real-time video technology, we allow audio-only communication for telehealth mental health services to established patients located in their homes.

After the PHE ends, Telehealth Mental Health services may include new or established patients so long as an in-person, face-to-face, non-telehealth service takes place within 6 months of the telehealth mental health services.

This means that all telehealth mental health patients should have had a first in-person visit no later than 6 months after the PHE.

After the PHE and after the initial 6-month in-person visit, all telehealth mental health patients must have a subsequent non-telehealth in-person visit within 12 months of the initial 6-month in-person visit date

During the initial 6-month in-person visit or during the subsequent 12-month in-person visits, if the original telehealth practitioner is unavailable for the face-to-face visit, we allow the clinician’s colleague in the same subspecialty and in the same group practice, to provide the in-person, non-telehealth service to the patient.

There are two additional modifiers for the current year in 2022 that relate to telehealth mental health services. The modifiers are, 

  • FQ - A telehealth service was furnished using real-time audio-only communication technology
  • FR - A supervising practitioner was present through a real-time two-way, audio/video communication technology

The national public health emergency has been extended from July 19, 2021, to Oct. 17, 2021. Below is an overview of how that extension affects temporary provisions for COVID-19 testing and testing-related visits.

Individual Exchange, Individual and Group Market health plans:

COVID - 19 Vaccine Updates - May'2021

The FDA is recommended to use "Pfizer-BioNTech" COVID-19 vaccine for adolescents aged 12-15 years.  

On May 12, 2021, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended the use of the "Pfizer-BioNTech" COVID-19 vaccine in adolescents aged 12-15 years, and CDC Director Rochelle Walensky adopted this ACIP recommendation.

All COVID-19 vaccination providers are directed and required to make available and administer COVID-19 vaccine to all persons eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine consistent with the applicable Emergency Use Authorizations for such products.   

The COVID-19 vaccines themselves are free to everyone 12 years and older in the United States, but providers incur costs associated with administering them, training staff, and storing the vaccine. 

If these services are not covered by a patient’s health plan or only partially covered, providers are not allowed to balance bill the patients.

Claims for reimbursement will be priced as described below for eligible services,

Vaccine administration fees will be priced based on national Medicare rates for administering the COVID-19 vaccine (not geographically adjusted) and are outlined below,

For dates of service through March 14, 2021:-

  • Administration of a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine - $28.39
  • Administration of the first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine requiring a series of two or more doses - $16.94
  • Administration of the final dose of a COVID-19 vaccine requiring a series of two or more doses - $28.39

For dates of service on or after March 15, 2021:-

  • Administration (per dose) of a COVID-19 vaccine - $40.00
  • Reimbursement will be based on the incurred date of service.

HRSA COVID-19 Coverage Assistance Fund

The Biden-Harris Administration is providing free access to COVID-19 vaccines for every adult living in the United States. 

Accordingly, the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) COVID-19 Coverage Assistance Fund (CAF) will cover the costs of administering COVID-19 vaccines to patients whose health insurance doesn’t cover vaccine administration fees, or does but typically has patient cost-sharing. 

While patients cannot be billed directly for the COVID-19 vaccine fees, costs to health care providers on the front lines for administering COVID-19 vaccines to underinsured patients will now be fully covered through CAF, subject to available funding. 

As vaccination efforts accelerate, patients will increasingly gain access to COVID-19 vaccines at locations near where they live with providers they trust.

Providers are eligible for claims reimbursement if they have administered Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized COVID-19 vaccines under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) or FDA-licensed COVID-19 vaccines under a Biologics License Application (BLA) to individuals whose health plan does not cover vaccine administration fees, or does but typically has patient cost-sharing.

The eligible providers will be reimbursed at national Medicare rates for vaccine administration fees, and for any patient cost-sharing related to vaccination, including,

  • Co-pays
  • Deductibles,
  • Co-insurance

    Repayment of COVID-19 Accelerated and Advance Payments

    All Medicare providers and suppliers who requested and received CAAPs that we began recovering those payments as early as March 30, 2021, depending upon the 1 year anniversary of when you received your first payment. 

    It also gives information on how to identify recovered payments. 

    Title V (Section 2501) of the Continuing Appropriations Act, 2021 and Other Extensions Act, enacted on October 1, 2020, amended the CAAP repayment terms for all providers and suppliers who requested and received CAAPs during the COVID-19 PHE and established a lower interest rate of 4% for any demanded overpayments to recover CAAP balances due. 

    The CAAP repayment terms provide as follows,
    • Repayment begins 1 year starting from the date we issued your first CAAP.
    • Beginning 1 year from the date we issued the CAAP and continuing for 11 months, we’ll recover the CAAP from Medicare payments due to providers and suppliers at a rate of 25%.
    • After the end of this 11 month period, we’ll continue to recover the remaining CAAP from Medicare payments due to providers and suppliers at a rate of 50% for 6 months.
    • After the end of the 6 month period, your Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) will issue you a demand letter for full repayment of any remaining balance of the CAAP. 
    • If we don’t receive a payment within 30 days, interest will accrue at the rate of 4% from the date your MAC issues you the demand letter. 
    • After that, we’ll assess interest for each full 30-day period that you fail to repay the balance.
    If you received an accelerated or advance payment, CMS will begin to recoup any outstanding balance from any payments due to you from your Medicare claims. 

    This began as soon as March 30, 2021, depending upon the 1 year anniversary of when you received your first payment
