Ohio Reimbursement for Telehealth
Ohio Medicaid and private payers reimburse for Telehealth sessions at the same rate as inperson sessions. In addition, patient sites, (also known as originating sites) can bill Medicaid for a facility fee (Q3014) to cover the costs of technology. With our solution, no extra equipment is needed other than teh computers and mobile devices that you already have. The facility fee will pay for our service rather quickly and the rest is added revenue for your organization.
