Billing Update

Further expansion of telehealth coverage for Medicare recipients

Last night (March 30) we received great news from the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) regarding psychology’s billing codes. CMS approved many of APA’s recommendations for expanding telehealth coverage. Psychological and neuropsychological testing and group psychotherapy can now be billed through telehealth in Medicare during the COVID-19 crisis.

We also recently learned that psychologists can work from their homes and will be reimbursed by Medicare.

APA staffers are rapidly reviewing the technical details and will post further guidance as soon as possible.
