CMS Provides Additional Guidance on Telehealth Services Provided by RHCs and FQHCs

On July 6, 2020, CMS updated MLN Matters Article SE20016  to clarify how Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) and Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) can apply the Cost Sharing (CS) modifier to preventive services furnished via telehealth. The update includes:

  • Additional claim examples
  • New section on the RHC Productivity Standard

There are several CPT and HCPCS codes included in the Article’s list of telehealth codes that describe preventive services that have waived cost-sharing.  See MLN Matters Article SE20016 for additional information.
