The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) updated the MLN Matters Article SE20016 , New and Expanded Flexibilities for RHCs and FQHCs, to clarify how the Cost Sharing modifier can be applied to preventive services furnished via telehealth. This update includes:
- Additional guidance on telehealth services that have cost-sharing waived; in order to distinguish those telehealth services that do not have cost sharing waived from those that do, such as certain preventive services, CMS has modified the descriptor of the CS modifier to account for this additional use
- Additional claim examples
- New section on the RHC Productivity Standard
All other information remains the same.
