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.
Here are the steps:
On the NEW CLAIM page
Step 1: Enter the in-person service code and click "Add Entry (F7)"
Step 2: Click Action on the right-hand side of the service code -> select "Convert to K083A"
The service code will then be replaced with K083A with the appropriate quantity
On the MY PATIENT LIST page:
Step 1: Select the in-person service code
Step 2: Click the Edit (pen) button for the service code
Step 3: Check off "Convert to K083A" and click "OK" button
The service code box will change to orange, which indicate the code will be converted to K083A
- 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.
