I have been looking at CMS, AMA and AAPC and I am generally confused about how we should be coding these telehealth sessions with our patients.

Can someone educate me or direct me to the source for documentation.

for telehealth visits that "are NOT related to an E/M service within the previous 7 days and do NOT lead to an E/M service within the next 24 hours or soonest available appointment."
What does that mean- for example: if provider has Virtual visits or Telephone E/M with patient that patient -initiated. Then, with Virtual Check-ins, provider is supposed to followup with patient within 24 hours. At that time, the patient reports additional symptoms and the provider determines that they need to do a more extensive visit (such as an office E/M code) via video telehealth does that count as next available appointment?

hope that questions makes sense.
