New York Telemedicine: CPT Codes
Unique CPT codes do not exist specifically for telemedicine or telehealth. Instead a modifier is applied to existing codes.
For interactive audio and video sessions, place a GT modifier in front of the CPT codes you typically use for in person services.
For services provided via an asynchronous telecommunication system, simply add a GQ modifier in front of the CPT codes you typically use for in person services.
