Are all the new regulations about telehealth coding and billing for COVID-19 confusing? This webinar will breakdown the new requirements and provide an understanding of the new Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) 1135 Waiver where the rules have been “relaxed.” Hear about what exactly constitutes “flexibilities” with these new guidelines.
Clear guidance will be provided, using examples of when and how to appropriately bill for telehealth services under the new 1135 Waiver. The presenter will also address many of the questions that have been flooding in.
Understand what the new rules are, what exactly are the definitions of each type of service for correct coding and billing and how to navigate the differences in rules between the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and other payers. Also, with states having their own input over how telehealth is delivered, California information will be discussed along with how it compares to national policy.
Take this brief quiz to see if you and your team would benefit from this webinar.
