RE: Addendum to 2019 Official Connecticut Practitioner Fee Schedule effective March 1, 2020

The Workers' Compensation Commission has issued an addendum to 2019 Official Connecticut Practitioner Fee Schedule, which addresses telehealth/telemedicine during the COVID-19 crisis.

Published by Optum, the addendum assigns fees to new codes for telemedicine services provided by physical therapists and occupational therapists and gives instruction on the proper codes to use for billing of telemedicine services provided by a physician. There will be no reduction in reimbursement for telemedicine services. They are to be reimbursed at the same fee schedule amount as listed for non-telemedicine services.

Information in this addendum will be valid for dates of service beginning March 1, 2020 and continuing through the publication of the 2020 fee schedule on July 15, 2020.

The addendum may be obtained from Optum at https://www.optum360coding.com/support/product-updates#2019 under "Product Support."
