They are not the same thing - telehealth requires interactive audio and visual real-time interaction between the provider and patient. There aren't specific codes for telehealth services - you'd code based on the service provided. Here's a link to Medicare guide for telehealth coding and billing which should give you most of the background you're looking for, including a list of what services/codes are allowed using telehealth:
