Telehealth services and the expansion of benefits during COVID-19 (B)

Thursday, October 15

10-11:30 a.m. ET

Delivery language: English

In March, CMS broadened access to telehealth services. Medicare began temporarily paying providers to furnish telehealth services to beneficiaries residing across the country. Medicare beneficiaries can now get a wider range of services from their providers without traveling to a health care facility. This ensures Medicare beneficiaries can visit with their provider from their home, preventing risk to themselves or others.
We're here to help you learn about telehealth services. Register now so you don't miss this opportunity to learn important information about the new flexibilities during the COVID-19 public health emergency.
During this free educational event, you will learn about:
COVID-19 impacts and waivers
Expansions to telehealth benefits
What services can be rendered via telehealth
What audio and visual capabilities are allowed for telehealth
How to bill for telehealth services
Where to locate COVID-19 resources
This webcast is intended for any provider who bills patient services to Medicare and their coding and billing staff.
