Hi ......

I need a clarification in Telehealth service....

The payment amount for the professional service provided via a telecommunications system by the
physician or practitioner at the distant site is equal to the current fee schedule amount for the service
provided at the facility rate. .

(https://www.cms.gov/Regulations-and-Guidance/Guidance/Transmittals/Downloads/R3586CP.pdf)
Any one explain what does this mean, how it will be affect the regular payment methodology .
If the Distant service provider performed this service from Office, how we can bill this service with Facility rate .
Please help me on this....
