CPT Billing Codes and
Reimbursement for TM

With the advent of Covid-19, the standards for reimbursement of telemedicine services have completely been transformed as many providers have resorted to telehealth solutions as their sole way of providing care to their patients.

TM services are covered under CPT codes
99201-99215 with specific modifiers (e.g., GT, 95, GQ).

Modifier GT


“Via interactive audio and video telecommunications systems.” GT is the most commonly used modifier. You can append GT to any CPT code for services that are provided via telemedicine.


Reimbursement similar to traditional in-office visits


*Recognized by CMS and Private Payers

Modifier 95


“Synchronous telemedicine service rendered via real-time interactive audio and video telecommunications system.” Modifier 95 is similar to GT, but, unlike GT, there are limits to the codes that it can be appended to.


Reimbursement similar to traditional in-office visits


*Recognized by CMS and Private Payers

Modifier GQ


“Via asynchronous telecommunication system.” Asynchronous telemedicine means that medical care was provided via image and video that was not provided in real-time.
