Can anyone tell me how to code a telehealth visit if the physician and patient are at the same location. ( ie, Dr. in his office , but patient in a room. ) I am not sure if this is even allowed or not.

Thanks.

I would agree with csperoni. Telehealth is remote patient care and being separated by a couple of walls isn't remote and if you bill the visit that way,I would consider it fraudulent or at least abuse.
