Default Non Face-to-Face Physician Services

The subject of billing for non face-to-face E/Ms was discussed yesterday at a physician network meeting. Two of the managers mentioned that CPT reads that a physician can provide counseling and/or coordination of care to the patient or family member.

I have searched the CMS website for information and have found a lot of older material.

Does anyone have the most current CMS link regarding coverage and reimbursement for non face-to-face physician services. I am aware that Medicare will not cover these services. I need to provide documentation supporting that although a code may be billable it does not necessarily mean that it is reimbursable by all insurances.

Thanks,
Lori
