The Business Cost Premium (BCP) will be temporarily expanded to apply to in-office telehealth fee items during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is effective May 1, 2020 (not retroactive).
Eligible BCP claims require submission of the unique facility number you received when you registered for the BCP as well as location code A, which identifies Practitioner’s office – in community. The appropriate facility number and service location code is based on where the service would have been provided if it had been performed face-to-face.
Check your EMR to make sure the facility number and location code come up when telehealth fees are billed. If not, you or your MOA will have to manually add the codes for each billing or hold the billings until your EMR is updated.
Remember: In order to receive the BCP, physicians need to register their facility (clinic) and attach themselves as a practitioner of the facility.
