KY Medicaid Paying for Telehealth WCC/EPSDT-for 2 visits!

New Entries as of 4/14/2020 58. Can EPSDT well-child visits be conducted by telehealth?

While DMS recommends that in-person visits be conducted for beneficiaries who are younger than 24 months, this may not be possible in many places. As such, DMS will reimburse at the same rate as an in-person visit for a telehealth well- child visit. An in-person visit should be completed within 6 months of the end of the declared emergency to complete the rest of the components of the well-child visit that were not able to be performed via telehealth. For the in-person visit, the follow-up visit code of 99213 should be billed.
