Hospital Admission Codes Removed from Telehealth List

cms update

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services issued a correction notice on Thursday March 18, in the Federal Register.

Codes inadvertently included on the Telehealth List in error:

96121, 99221, 99222, and 99223

These codes are not considered Telehealth.  The CMS Telehealth list is not reflective of the changes as of this post.  The correction effective and application date is January 1, 2021.  CMS has retroactively issued the effective date.
