Payment for Electronic Communication H-385.919

Fee Schedules

Our AMA will: (1) advocate that pilot projects of innovative payment models be structured to include incentive payments for the use of electronic communications such as Web portals, remote patient monitoring, real-time virtual office visits, and email and telephone communications; (2) continue to update its guidance on communication and information technology to help physicians meet the needs of their patients and practices; and (3) educate physicians on how to effectively and fairly bill for electronic communications between patients and their physicians.
