Q. Does the three-visit limit in 30 days for physical, occupational and speech therapists apply to assessment and management only?

Is the limit on codes 98966-98968 total or per discipline? Can the regular telehealth therapy visits be covered using a modifier GT with 97530, 97110 and 92507?

A. Bulletin 20-008 , which was issued on March 27, authorized common therapy codes to be used to render therapy through telemedicine. These services (codes 97530, 97110 and 92507)can be provided through telehealth in accordance with the service authorization or service plan in place within the parameters set in the bulletin. The three-visit limit for codes 98966-98968 is only for telephonic assessment and management services and is a total of three across disciplines.
