Telemedicine Reimbursement Policy: Temporary Update

Effective Date:
March 1, 2020

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY through at least 90 days after the end of the public health emergency and State of Emergency declared by the Governor, in an effort to connect members with their providers, Horizon NJ Health shall expand the use of telemedicine services, for participating providers, during the current public health emergency, COVID-19. Horizon NJ Health shall reimburse the following services in addition to the existing Telemedicine and Telehealth reimbursement policy:

The following are the telemedicine services that may be utilized during this public health emergency:

  • Telephonic Services (Phone call with audio only)
  • Telemedicine Services (Both synchronous audio and visual required)
  • Online Patient Portal Communication (Patient initiated virtual check-in for established patients only)

For all telemedicine services rendered, the provider should bill as follows:

  • Use place of service (POS) ‘02’
  • Append modifier ‘95’ or ‘GT’

Temporary extended telemedicine services includes: audiology/tinnitus assessments, behavioral health assessments, behavioral health counseling, behavioral health OBAT/MAT services, hearing aid checks (binaural and monaural), occupational therapy (OT) evaluations, physical therapy (PT) evaluations, self-management education services and speech therapy services. Review a list of the existing procedure codes allowed via telemedicine as well as the new extended codes.

The telemedicine site of origin guidelines will be waived during this public health emergency. Horizon NJ Health will not require a member and/or provider to go to a specific location to engage in telemedicine.

Telemedicine service provisions are limited to those services within a provider’s current scope of practice.

Authorization requirements are waived for telemedicine services during this temporary expansion.

Providers must maintain a complete and accurate record of all telemedicine services performed for Horizon NJ Health members in accordance with applicable law, rules and regulations, and Horizon NJ Health policies.

Limitations and Exclusions:
While reimbursement is considered, payment determination is subject to, but not limited to:

  • Benefit limitations;
  • The terms of any applicable provider participation agreement;
  • Routine claim editing logic, including but not limited to incidental or mutually exclusive logic;
  • Pertinent Horizon NJ Health reimbursement policies and/or medical policies;
