Section 3704 of the CARES Act authorizes FQHCs to furnish distant site telehealth services to Medicare beneficiaries during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE).  
Requirements for FHQCs were as follows:
  • Must report three HCPCS/CPT codes for distant site telehealth services
    • the FQHC Prospective Payment System (PPS) specific payment code (G0466, G0467, G0468, G0469 or G0470)
    • the HCPCS/CPT code that describes the services furnished via telehealth with modifier 95 and G2025
These claims were to be paid at the FHQC PPS rate only to be reprocessed beginning July 1, 2020, at the rate of $92.03.
FHQC providers were advised to hold claims without a FQHC qualifying visits code (G0466, G0467, G0468, G0469 or G0470) until July 1, 2020, then bill with HCPCS code G2025.
Beginning July 1, 2020, FQHCs are required to submit HCPCS code G2025. Modifier 95 can be billed but not required.
