Program Materials

This CLE webinar will guide healthcare counsel on compliance with the evolving federal and state level telehealth requirements. The panel will address the steps that entities and providers should take to ensure compliance with stricter telehealth requirements.

Description

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the use of telehealth services, often with relaxed requirements in order to address healthcare needs during the pandemic. As the healthcare industry adjusts to the new normal and in some cases reverts to tougher standards, healthcare entities and providers will need to ensure they meet the requirements to practice telehealth.

For example, prior to the explosion of COVID-19, Medicare reimbursement for telehealth services had significant limitations, including which types of healthcare clinical practitioners could provide services and which services could be reimbursed. Since the pandemic, CMS has made temporary changes expanding the breadth of Medicare telehealth services and the clinical practitioners that can furnish Medicare telehealth services.

From consent to data privacy to reimbursement issues, healthcare providers that have utilized the temporary relaxation of telehealth requirements should be prepared to comply with the post-pandemic landscape and a return to stricter federal and state regulations.

Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare attorneys examines the changes to telehealth requirements that have been made at both the federal and state level. The panel will address the steps that entities and providers should take to ensure compliance with telehealth requirements going forward as the requirements revert to more stringent standards.
