News & Information

MLN released information stating they have eliminated the requirement to use modifier GT on Telehealth services.

As a result of eliminating the need for the GT modifier Medicare now requires the use of a POS Code 02 to describe services furnished via telehealth.

  • The new POS code became effective January 1, 2017. Use of the telehealth POS code certifies that the service meets the telehealth requirements.
