Washington Reimbursement for Telehealth
Washington pays for telepsychiatry, telemedicine + a separate facility fee (Q3014). The facility fee is an extra revenue boost for the originating site (patient site) that reimburses for technology, equipment and additional staffing costs. Since our service doesnt require any additional equipment other than what you already have, this fee will pay for our service rather quickly and the rest each month is added revenue for your organization.
In the state of Washington, the distant site (provider site) can be physicians or nurse practitioners and the orignating site (patient site) can be a provider's office, a hospital a FQHC, or a rural health clinic. For more information, see information on Telehealth beginning on page 74 of the manual here.
In addition, Washington has a parity law requiring the private Insurers to pay for Telemedicine and Telehealth services as long as the service is deemed an essential health benefit by the guidelines outlined in the ACA.
