Telehealth Facility Billing

    Hi all-

    Like many, we are beginning a telehealth program at our facility. Our physicians are completing these visits in our clinic settings instead of from their own homes. Is anyone finding that we are able to bill insurance for a facility fee associated with a telehealth visit? I've read that if we host the call with the patient in the room to a physician who is offsite, we could charge for the room we use, but I'm not coming across literature which states if the provider is using the facility, does that count as well in our current circumstances?

    I appreciate any guidance.

    Thanks, Amy
