What is or are a Psychotherapy CPT code to use for billing Medicare for telemed?

In the 2017 CPT code manual, the telemedicine-appropriate codes are marked with a star. The complete list of telemedicine services and their CPT codes is listed in new CPT Appendix P.
The psychotherapy services that CPT designates as appropriate for telemedicine are:
90832 psychotherapy, 30 minutes with patient.
90834 psychotherapy, 45 minutes with patient.
90837 psychotherapy, 60 minutes with patient.
90845 psychoanalysis.90846 family psychotherapy (without the patient present), 50 minutes.
90847 family psychotherapy (with the patient present), 50 minutes 90863.
Hope that helps!

Yes you need to append GT modifier with Telemed codes.
