Telehealth Reimbursement May Be changing. How Should Providers Prepare?
The future potential of telehealth hinges on how it's reimbursed. Virtual care may be popular among patients, but if providers can't get paid for their services, it's unlikely they'll be able to continue to provide them.
The government has signaled its support for reimbursing some telehealth services, at least in the short term. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced earlier this month, for example, that it would add 11 virtual services to its reimbursement list during the COVID-19 public health emergency – following in the footsteps of its earlier flexibilities for virtual care.
