ACP Resources on COVID-19
ACP has developed new COVID-19 Telehealth Coding and Billing Practice Management Tips. The use of online digital or telehealth services whenever possible is encouraged in order to mitigate exposure of patients, health care workers, and the community to the virus, and practices should consider establishing related protocols and procedures. The new resource includes online digital and telehealth billing codes to help practices make adjustments due to COVID-19.
ACP is developing and frequently updating COVID-19 resources and information for internists, available on ACP's COVID-19 Resource Hub. Additionally, a collection of Annals of Internal Medicine articles related to COVID-19 is updated as new content becomes available.
