Beginning with dates of service on or after January 1, 2022, Empire BlueCross BlueShield’s (“Empire”) Virtual Visits commercial reimbursement policy will be updated to add the following:
  • Place of service 10 (telehealth provided in patient’s home)
  • Place of service 02 (telehealth provided other than in patient’s home)

 

Services reported by a professional provider with a place of service 02 or 10 will be eligible for non-office place of service reimbursement.

 

These correct coding updates align with the telehealth place of service updates released by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

 

Additionally, the Related Coding section of the policy is updated to clarify that for Q3014, the member must be physically present in the originating facility.
