Medicare Reimbursement for TeleHealth

The guidance in this article is based on years of experience navigating Medicare across state lines and understanding that clinicians rendering behavioral health services must have claims billed cleanly to get reimbursed. With all these new changes, there are expected roadblocks in the claim-approval process.  We encourage you to consult with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to ensure the accuracy of your billing practices.

According to The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the Department of Human Services (HHS) published their final rule for 2022 and have changed the Medicare physician fee schedule (PFS) along with other Medicare Part B payment policies.

Telemental Health in the Sunny State of Florida

Florida’s Newly Published Report from the Telehealth Advisory Council

Telehealth is a constantly evolving mode of healthcare, and there are numerous aspects of the field in need of clarification so that statutes, policies, and practices follow the same guidelines. Telehealth is not a type of health care, rather it is the manner in which care is given. As the standards for that care become more defined and the use of this mode more prevalent, so will the need for caregivers who are adequately trained and licensed to deliver telehealth.

In 2016, the State of Florida created the Telehealth Advisory Council in order to survey, research and recommend changes to telehealth in order to better serve those living in the state.  The increase in both access and use of telehealth will also require an increase in health care practitioners offering telehealth services.
