New Virtual Care Codes for COVID-19

Please note: the new price list will be made available as soon as Alberta Health’s systems can accept the new fee codes.

On March 23, 2020, Alberta Health has implemented new, temporary billing codes for virtual care related to COVID-19: 

  • Visit Services – HSCs: 03.03CV and 03.03FV.
  • Consultation Services – HSCs: 03.08CV and 08.19CX.
  • Mental Health Services – HSCs: 08.19CV and 08.19CW

According to Alberta Health, these changes will be retroactive to March 17, 2020.

We are in the process of updating Healthquest to include these codes, and we should have the new tables released shortly. We will provide another update as soon as the new price list is available.

Please be advised that although these changes are retroactive to March 17, 2020, Alberta Health’s claim system is currently unable to accept claims for these codes.

For more information on the update, read more about it in the latest AHCIP Bulletin.
