Avera Health Plans has been fielding questions around the coverage of telehealth services during the current COVID-19 pandemic. We're providing flexibility to providers during this difficult time and this page will help navigate telehealth during these circumstances.
- Will be expected to follow normal CPT coding and billing guidelines;
- Should document the means by which the telehealth service was provided and billed; and
- May append telehealth services using HIPPA compliant, real-time audio-video technology with modifier 95, although it will not be required.
