Healthcare IT News reports that 65% of patients with primary care providers would be willing to see them through a telehealth visit—and 50 million Americans would switch their family practice providers to have access to video visits. As telehealth use soars, Medicare, Medicaid and commercial reimbursement policies are changing and evolving in response.

What are the latest trends in coverage and reimbursement—and how do they impact the future of healthcare and of your organization? Manatt provided the answer in our recent webinar “Tracking Telehealth Reimbursement Trends.” And we want to be sure you don’t miss the important information shared during the program.

  • An overview of the current telehealth landscape, including definitions of key terms
  • A look at how telehealth is reimbursed in Medicare Parts A, B and C—and a review of recent changes in Medicare telehealth coverage and reimbursement policies
  • Key findings from Manatt’s new 50-state survey of state laws and Medicaid program policies around practice standards and licensure; coverage and reimbursement; eligible patient settings, provider types and technologies; service limitations; and Medicaid managed care
  • A discussion of emerging telehealth reimbursement trends among commercial plans, employers and the Department of Veterans Affairs
  • The implications of telemedicine’s increasingly critical role in healthcare delivery

As you heard during the program, our Medicaid segment was based on Manatt Health’s new 50-state survey of state laws and Medicaid fee-for-service (FFS) program policies related to telehealth. Through easy-to-use, interactive maps, the survey delivers insights into key findings across six critical categories, including:

  • Practice Standards and Licensure
  • Coverage and Reimbursement
  • Eligible Patient Settings
  • Eligible Provider Types
  • Eligible Technologies
  • Service Limitations

The survey provides detailed, state-by-state summaries of evolving laws and Medicaid policies—and an at-a-glance assessment of whether each state is progressive, moderate or restrictive in incorporating telehealth into its Medicaid program. Now you can turn to a single, comprehensive resource for understanding how each state is responding to the proliferation of telehealth technologies, including which are leading the charge to expand reimbursement for telehealth and where barriers remain. You have a decision support tool to help you create the most effective telehealth strategy for your organization in each target state.
