Billing codes for telehealth video visits

We support and encourage you to provide care for new and established patients
Back to Knowledge Center

We support and encourage you to provide care for new and established patients through video or in person, from any location (home or office) and at any time, as long as the care is clinically appropriate, properly documented and follows appropriate billing procedures.

Payment for services is based on the lesser of the Colorado Department of Workers Compensation (DOWC) Fee Schedule or the billed amount minus any contractual discounts, if applicable.

Payment for telehealth services is based on the non-facility RBRVS unit value for the CPT code multiplied by the appropriate conversion factor, but the additional $5.00 transmission fee is not payable.

If only audio is utilized, then services are not considered telehealth. If telehealth (audio and video) is utilized, refer to some of the codes listed below.
