Q: How should 301 clinics list modifiers when billing for service delivered through the telehealth flexibilities authorized during the COVID-19 public health emergency?

A: For codes 90832, 90834, 90837, 99408, H0001, H0032 and H0038, providers should bill with existing modifiers and use the second modifier field to add the GT modifier as applicable.

For code H0004, providers should bill with the GT modifier in the first modifier field.

The guidance provided above does not change the policy guidance, flexibilities or service dates listed in the memo issued from on April 17, it is only intended to clarify the proper placement of the GT modifier when providers are billing for service as described in previously announced policy changes.

Providers should continue to submit their questions and feedback to covid@scdhhs.gov.
