Telemedicine Solutions for Providers

The OMA and Ontario Ministry of Health have agreed to temporary codes to facilitate telemedicine and virtual care much as they did during the SARS outbreak a few years ago. The codes are not limited to COVID-19 screenings or patients with COVID-19, but are in place to reduce the risk of community spread by keeping people at home and out of doctors’ offices.

Some Tips for billing TeleMedicine

  • You can bill the Q012 after-hours premium against K080, K081 and K082 where appropriate.
  • Services must be documented on the patient’s medical record (including the start and stop times)
  • These codes will not contribute to Outside Use
  • These fees will not contribute to the Fee-For-Service-Hard-Cab
