Keeping MSHO Members Informed

On 3/17/20 Medicare announced changes to their policies related to billing of Telehealth services, relaxing rules and allowing coverage for telehealth services for patients while they are at home.  We are not sure whether the private payers are going to adopt the same guidelines but as we are inquiring and as we find out, we will update this article and make announcements to our members.
