Got TransitionTM and the American Academy of Pediatrics have released the new 2019 Transition Coding and Reimbursement Tip Sheet. This helpful new resource supports the delivery of recommended transition services in pediatric and adult primary and specialty care settings. It includes an updated list of transition-related CPT codes, including new codes relating to chronic care management and interprofessional telephone/internet/electronic health record assessment and management services and referral service. It also includes current Medicare fees for each code, two new clinical vignettes with recommended coding suggestions, a table displaying what type of providers can bill for each code, whether the service is face-to-face or non-face-to-face, and an insurance carrier letter that can be customized for payers to encourage recognition of transition-related codes.
