Webinar/Audio Conference FAQs

Prior to 2019 CMS had limited payments for telehealth mostly to rural providers, but recently decided that access to care is not just a rural issue. This historic change in position has opened up additional opportunities for providers to be reimbursed for additional telemedicine services provided to Medicare beneficiaries. Other payers are following suit. With increasing telehealth reimbursement, if you are not already providing these services, you may want to consider doing so now.

Reimbursement for Telehealth services can be complicated with state-specific laws to observe and reimbursement policies varying per payer. Make sure you are up-to-date on the rules and limitations for reimbursement. Join Maxine Collins for this important webinar program to gain confidence and ensure your providers are properly reimbursement for telehealth services.

Are you sure your providers are eligible and meet the requirements to report telehealth services? Does your practice always obtain and appropriately document patients' informed consent? Have you implemented Telemedicine policies and procedures in your practice?

Attend this session to learn all you need to know for correctly billing for telemedicine to Medicare, Medicaid, and private payers. Learn key differences in reimbursement policies at the state-level.
