Listen to an overview of the latest telehealth coding and billing requirements, including operational impacts, solutions and challenges. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services continues to expand access and reimbursement for telehealth services during the COVID-19 public health emergency. Learn about recent key actions, policies and reimbursement for telehealth in response to this pandemic. Most programs quickly adopted virtual strategies, but are facing lower patient volumes, staffing challenges, etc. Hear from member programs about the "boots on the ground" operational details, including:

  • Identifying when telehealth and virtual care services qualify with Medicare’s COVID-19 rules
  • Differentiating between virtual care and telehealth services
  • Workflows used to assist with transition of daily office schedules (new patients, follow-ups, etc.)
  • Strategies to successfully and compliantly setup and manage patient care during the COVID-19 emergency (triage, revamping waiting areas, staffing, communication, etc.)
