New G-Codes to Pay Doctors for Broad Array of Non-Face-to-Face Care



Though few physicians realize it yet, a new CMS rule will begin to pay them for the hours they and their clinical teams spend managing Medicare patients' chronic conditions beyond face-to-face office visits.

They should do the same thing for Medicaid, but that's not federal. A lot of times when everyone else makes sense, state laws do not. People will have to start bugging their state officials to come up with something for Medicaid patients, especially considering the pediatric population is highly likely to have families requiring physician services at odd hours.

When can doctors who take care of Medicaid patients, and not so much Medicare (think Pediatricians) get the same opportunity?

Can Rural Health Clinics that are paid by face to face encounters, now bill the non-face to face visits with the Gcode???
