Several fees for longitudinal family physicians require that an annual Portal Code (14070, 14071, 14072) be billed. In order for you to bill these fees in 2023, you need to bill the appropriate Portal Code. We recommend reviewing the billing rules to ensure that you meet the eligibility criteria prior to billing.
Details about eligibility for the Portal Codes and how to submit each can be found by clicking on the fee codes below.
Community Longitudinal Family Physicians
If you are a community longitudinal family physician, you can submit 14070.
If you are considering moving to the Longitudinal Family Physician Payment Model in 2023:
- Submit 14070 (if you are eligible) to enable payment of appropriate billings prior to your transition date.
- Please review information about billing Chronic Disease Management fees (14050, 14051, 14052, 14053) and Complex Care Planning and Management Fees (14033, 14075). See General Payment FAQs at the bottom of the page.
If you are a locum tenens who works on a temporary basis for a community longitudinal family physician who has submitted 14070 and is away from practice, you can submit 14071.
Physicians with a Focused Practice in Long Term Care
If you are a family physician who has a focused practice providing care in long-term care facilities and are not working as a Community Longitudinal Family Physician, you can submit 14072.
If you are a community longitudinal family physician who is eligible to bill 14070 AND you work in long-term care, you do not need to submit 14072 as well.
Physicians working under Alternative Payment/Funding Models
If you are a family physician who provides services under an Alternative Payment/Funding Model, you are not able to submit 14070 or 14071 if your duties would otherwise include provision of this service.
