TELEPSYCHIATRY IN NORTH DAKOTA
At Genoa Telepsychiatry, we increase access to behavioral healthcare across the U.S. by building telepsychiatry programs that connect patients with psychiatrists & APRNs remotely. As the largest outpatient telepsychiatry community, we hire, train, and integrate psychiatrists and APRNs into organizations that treat underserved communities.
Who can be a Telepsychiatrist for my clinic?
Psychiatrists & APRNs: Any psychiatrist (MD/DO) or Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) with a state license in North Dakota can provide care via telepsychiatry.
How does reimbursement work for telepsychiatry in North Dakota?
Each telepsychiatry session generates two billable codes:
- The standard CPT codes for outpatient, psychiatric services.
- An originating site facility fee (Q3014) that allows clinics to receive reimbursement for the use of the facility where telehealth services are rendered.
In addition to covering provider services at the same rate as in-person services, Medicaid also pays $30.56 per session as an originating site facility fee (Q3014) to cover onsite administrative costs in North Dakota.
Clinics are eligible for Medicare reimbursement in North Dakota if they are located in a HPSA (Health Professional Shortage Area).
What tech does my clinic need?
Setting up telepsychiatry at your clinic is simple. The set up will require:
- A two-way video telecommunication system that allows for real-time communication between the provider and patient
- HIPAA-compliant video conferencing technology
UTILIZATION & PROGRAM SUSTAINABILITY
Utilization is the percentage of a telepsychiatrist’s time that is spent on reimbursable patient care. Tracking this number helps clinics understand the financial sustainability of telepsychiatry for their organization.
