Partner Nate Lacktman was quoted in an article in Medical Economics
, “Get paid for using the patient portal
,” about the development of two new HCPCS codes that will allow physicians to receive Medicare reimbursements for some types of virtual check-ins and asynchronous remote evaluations.
Lacktman said the development of the two new codes is a game changer. “These codes could reduce physician burnout and the need to double- or triple-book appointments,” he said. “Unlike traditional Medicare telehealth services, these codes have no rural geographic limitations. The patient can be anywhere, including at home.”
