The Originating Site Facility Fee is the location of an eligible Medicare beneficiary at the time of a telemedicine visit. The Site Origination Fee, (SOF) for short, is code Q3014 and is a separately billable Part B service. We will train you on how to document billing for these encounters. The Medicare Allowable is approximately $26 per telehealth encounter.
