About the event
Telehealth allows healthcare practitioners to bridge gaps in providing care. As a result of the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) broadened access to telehealth services to provide beneficiaries access to a wider range of services from their doctors without having to travel to a healthcare facility. The PHE officially ended in May of 2023, but many flexibilities continue to exist for those participating in Medicare or Medicaid.
Gain details on the telehealth flexibilities that have been made permanent and identify which are only temporarily still in place. Know which telehealth services continue to be covered by private insurance carriers.
