Health systems are now quickly ramping up telehealth services and remote patient monitoring technologies to meet increasing demand for virtual care amid the COVID-19 outbreak. In response to the pandemic, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has broadened access to telehealth for Medicare patients and affirmed payment parity for some telehealth services. It’s expected that commercial payers will follow CMS’ lead. These recent changes by CMS have eliminated some of the previous telehealth reimbursement barriers, at least temporarily.
How can providers navigate the legislative and regulatory changes for telehealth and remote patient monitoring in the past month? What are the new opportunities? This webinar will explore some of the answers to those questions, as well as how to measure the financial impact of telehealth care.
Topics for discussion may include:
- How recent legislative and regulatory changes impact reimbursement for telehealth
- Understanding and measuring value of telehealth
- Non-financial benefits of virtual care
