New Feature - Convert to K083A


How to bill K083 (Virtual Specialist Consultation or Visit) Efficiently

Background: When conducting a specialist consultation or visit virtually (by phone or video), K083 would be billed in place of the applicable in-person consultation or visit fee. According to OHIP Bulletin #4745, the quantity for K083 = listed fee of the services provided in the SoB, rounded to the nearest $5, divided by 5.


We have developed a new feature "Convert to K083A" that allows you to easily convert regular in-person codes to K083.  With a simple click, convert an in-person consultation or visit code to K083 with the correct quantity.

On the MY PATIENT LIST page:

  • This feature is only available for the A-suffix in-person outpatient Consultation and Visits codes. 
  • This feature is only available on the web. We plan to have this feature for the mobile app early in the new year. 

Don't forget to enable the Auto-Populate Virtual Tracking Code feature. This feature will help you automatically add the K300/K301 to your virtual services as per the new rules from OHIP INFOBulletin 210904.
