GT/GQ modifiers

Medicare previously required providers to submit claims for telehealth services using the appropriate procedure code along with the telehealth GT modifier (“via interactive audio and video telecommunications systems”) or GQ modifier (“via an asynchronous (delayed communications) telecommunications system”). As of January 1, 2018, the GT modifier is only allowed on institutional claims billed under Critical Access Hospital (CAH) Method II since institutional claims do not use a POS code. If the GT modifier is billed by other provider types, the claim line will be rejected. The GQ modifier is still required when applicable (e.g., for those providers participating in the Alaska or Hawaii federal telemedicine demonstration programs).
