To claim against code G2012 “Virtual Check-in” can you use automated technologies such as AI powered messaging or a chatbot? If so how would this be reported back to medicare to be claimed?

Thanks for your question.
Code (G2012) may be reported for a virtual patient check-in. CMS pays separately for this service, which can be furnished using “real-time telephone interactions in addition to synchronous, two-way audio interactions that are enhanced with video or other kinds of data transmission.”
It means that there should be a two-way audio or video interaction. Messaging does not come under this. So this cannot be paid.
Please feel free to write if you have any question.
