American Medical Association Forms Telehealth Work Group

Early last month, the American Medical Association (AMA) formed a telehealth work group composed of clinical and technological experts from the medical community. The group will be charged with evaluating the accuracy of current Common Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes used in the provision of telehealth services, as well as developing recommendations for new telehealth CPT codes. The formation of the AMA telehealth group marks yet another positive step toward increasing the types of telehealth services eligible for coverage and reimbursement.
