FACILITY/TRANSMISSION FEE

FQHCs/RHCs:  Separate reimbursement for merely serving as the originating site is not available to FQHCs and RHCs.

SOURCE: IN Medicaid Telemedicine and Telehealth Module, Oct. 1, 2019, p. 4 & 5. (Accessed Feb. 2021).

Last updated 02/28/2021

Miscellaneous

For patients receiving ongoing telemedicine services, a physician should perform a traditional clinical evaluation at least once a year, unless otherwise stated in policy. The distant site physician should coordinate with the patient’s primary care physician.

Documentation must be maintained at the distant and originating locations to substantiate the services provided.  It must indicate the services were provided via telemedicine and location of the distant and originating sites.  Documentation is subject to post-payment review.

A provider can use telemedicine to prescribe a controlled substance to a patient who has not been previously examined. Opioids, however, cannot be prescribed via telemedicine, except in cases in which the opioid is a partial agonist (such as buprenorphine) and is being used to treat or manage opioid dependence.

SOURCE: IN Medicaid Telemedicine and Telehealth Module, Oct. 1, 2019, p. 1. (Accessed Feb. 2021).

Overview

Indiana Medicaid reimburses for live video telemedicine for certain services and providers.  Indiana Medicaid does not reimburse for store-and-forward although store-and-forward can still be used to facilitate other reimbursable services.  Indiana Medicaid defines telehealth as including remote patient monitoring (RPM) services and reimburses home health agencies for RPM for patients with diabetes, congestive heart failure and COPD.

Last updated 02/28/2021

Remote Patient Monitoring

POLICY

Indiana Code requires Medicaid to reimburse providers who are licensed as a home health agency for telehealth services.

SOURCE: IN Code, 12-15-5-11(c). (Accessed Feb. 2021).


CONDITIONS

The member must be receiving services from a home health agency.  Member must initially have two or more of the following events related to one of the conditions listed below within the previous twelve months:

  • Emergency room visit
  • Inpatient hospital stay

An emergency room visit that results in an inpatient hospital admission does not constitute two separate events.

  • The two qualifying events must be for the treatment of one of the following diagnoses: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Diabetes

SOURCE: IN Admin Code, Title 405, 5-16-3.1(d) & IN Medicaid Telemedicine and Telehealth Module, Oct. 1, 2019, p. 7. (Accessed Feb. 2021).

Store and Forward

POLICY

The IHCP allows store-and-forward technology (the electronic transmission of medical information for subsequent review by another healthcare provider) to facilitate other reimbursable services; however, separate reimbursement of the originating-site payment is not provided for store-and-forward technology because of restrictions in 405 IAC 5-38-2(4). Only live video is separately reimbursed by the IHCP.

SOURCE: IN Medicaid Telemedicine and Telehealth Module, Oct. 1, 2019, p. 1. (Accessed Feb. 2021).  

“Store and forward” means the transmission of a patient’s medical information from an originating site to the provider at a distant site without the patient being present for subsequent review by a health care provider at the distant site. Restrictions placed on store and forward reimbursement in this rule shall not disallow the permissible use of store and forward technology to facilitate reimbursable services.

Indiana Medicaid will not reimburse for store-and-forward services. However, restrictions placed on store-and-forward reimbursement shall not disallow the permissible use of store-and-forward technology to facilitate other reimbursable services.
