Not explicitly listed as originating site, however there is no restriction on eligible originating site, according to PA Dept. of Human Services Bulletin 99-22-02.
The originating site is where the beneficiary is located at the time the MA covered service is rendered to them via telemedicine. The originating site can be, but is not limited to the beneficiary’s home, a provider’s office, clinic, nursing facility, or other medical facility site. When the originating site is a provider’s office, clinic, nursing facility or other medical facility, staff at the originating site should be trained to assist beneficiaries with the use of the telemedicine equipment and available to provide in-person clinical intervention, if needed. The provider may bill the telehealth originating site facility fee (procedure code Q3014) for the use of their office if no other MA covered service is provided at the originating site.
Providers should obtain the location of the beneficiary at the time each service is rendered via telemedicine should there be a need for emergency medical services.
