The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) proposed reimbursements for certain telehealth services are a significant step forward for increasing access to telehealth services. The proposed revisions would benefit both providers and patients, allowing coverage for virtual visits and physician review of pre-recorded patient images and videos.

CMS is seeking comment on a variety of topics related to the proposed policy, including virtual care technology, frequency restrictions on virtual visits, and the scope of services offered via virtual care.

To learn more about the proposed rule and opportunities for comment, read my client alert on Drinker Biddle’s website.
