 Highlights:

1. Vermont Medicaid pays for telehealth at the same rate as face-to-face

2. The patient must present from an approved facility type such as a doctor's office.  This is called the originating site.

3. The originating site (where the patient presents) may bill for a facility fee (Q3014 - approximately $20 per session).  Example - If 15 med checks are done at a skilled nursing facility, the SNF may bill for 15*$20 = $300 for CPT code Q3014).  This is above and beyond the physicians fee.
