Telehealth during COVID-19: Ensuring Reimbursement Webinar

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and other payers are expanding the telehealth benefit on A TEMPORARY AND EMERGENCY BASIS UNDER THE 1135 WAIVER.

Telehealth refers to the exchange of medical information from one site to another through electronic communication to improve patient’s heath. Telligen, the Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organization (QIN-QIO) for Colorado, Iowa, Illinois, and Oklahoma, in partnership with the University of Colorado Practice Innovation Program, hosted a Webinar and question and answer session during which our expert speakers provided an overview of the CMS waiver 1135 rules as well as recommendations for coding and documentation for use of telehealth during COVID-19, so that patients can be cared for without leaving the safety of their homes.
