HFS System Issue:
Expansion of Telehealth Services – Payment of the Q3014 Telehealth Originating Site Fee to Community Mental Health Providers for SASS eligible participants
Telehealth Originating Site Facility Fee (Procedure Code Q3014) is billable by community mental health providers when a distant site physician service is rendered via telehealth to a Medicaid eligible participant per the 01/12/10 provider notice Expansion of Telehealth Services (pdf). Claims for Q3014 from community mental health providers for SASS eligible participants may have been inadvertently underpaid, due to logic that was tied to the payment of the distant site service.
