Listen to the new CNF podcast “Transitioning from pediatric to child healthcare with telehealth” below.
In this audio segment, we hear from two neurologists with different perspectives: Christine Baca is an adult epileptologist at the University of Colorado and Nassim Zecavati is a pediatric neurologist and epileptologist at Virginia Commonwealth University where she also serves as the Director of Epilepsy at the Children’s Hospital of Richmond.
Reimbursement for Transition
Got Transition and the American Academy of Pediatrics released a new 2020 Transition Coding and Reimbursement Tip Sheet to support the delivery of recommended transition services in pediatric and adult primary and specialty care settings. The new tip sheet includes a list of updated transition-related CPT codes, including the new code for transition readiness assessment, and current Medicare fees and RVUs for these services. It also includes a new set of eight clinical vignettes with recommended CPT and ICD-10 codes.
Got Transition’s Six Core Elements of Transition

- Expectation of Transition
- Yearly Self-Management Assessment
