Product Description

Find out the Standards for Getting Paid by Medicare or Insurers for Telehealth without Inviting Legal Liability

Telehealth has moved into the mainstream, especially in recent years due to greater acceptance by payers and the public. Although Medicare’s reimbursement of telehealth services is currently limited to particular regions and disciplines, new proposed laws and rules would greatly expand coverage. On the commercial side, many large insurers have embraced online medicine by adding access to approved telemedicine networks for their subscribers.

With improved, less costly and widely available technology, just about every provider and facility has the capability to bring health care online. At the same time, many state medical and hospital licensing agencies have adopted more lenient standards regarding telehealth.

Nevertheless, online providers are not given a free pass. For the most part, they are subject to the same regulatory and liability constraints as “bricks and mortar” providers. As a result, telehealth providers can find themselves in trouble over such issues as cross border care, HIPAA violations, kickbacks and inappropriate prescribing. As a result, providers entering online healthcare must be aware of the liability and regulatory risks and respond appropriately.

In this 60-minute session, Wayne J. Miller, Esq.will talk about the following items:

  • What are the standards for getting paid by Medicare or insurers for telehealth?
  • Can all E&M visits be conducted online and can the patient be at home?
  • Which specialty services are permitted to participate in telehealth?
  • Can doctors conduct virtual visits for patients in other states?
  • Are drug prescriptions allowed in telemedicine?

  • Learning from real world telehealth mistakes
