Can Your Organization Align Your Telehealth Medicare Payments to Waivers? We Provide Examples.


On a temporary basis, CMS issued blanket Section 1135 to healthcare professionals in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE).

In addition to the 1135 Waivers, CMS also made regulatory adjustments that allowed home health agencies to use telehealth services alongside in-person visits, so long as:

  1. the use of technology is related to the skilled services being furnished, and
  2. the use of technology is included in the plan of care with a description of how the technology will help achieve goals without substituting for an in-person visit.

But now the OIG wants to be sure the rules are being followed.

This Remington Report special report dives into the subject of home health telehealth payments.
