Is it appropriate for a provider who had a phone only visit with a patient, visit scheduled by patient as phone only telemedicine visit for sinusitis, scheduled visit initiated by the provider at appointment time, to bill an E&M (99213) and add a GT to indicate this was a telemedicine visit vs using the phone only time based codes 99441?

Who is the payer? If it's medicare, as a condition of payment, you must use an interactive audio and video telecommunications system that permits real-time communication between you, at the distant site, and the beneficiary, at the originating site.

Doesn't seem like your guy has an interactive video and audio in this particular case.

Do you have a link for the requirements for this? Thanks in advance.
