The COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) will expire at the end of the day on May 11, 2023. How will the end of the PHE affect telehealth?
When the PHE ends on May 11, 2023 @ 11:59PM, there are a number of changes that will occur and more specifically with telehealth. Below are resources to help navigate these new updates.
CCHP offers federal and state information from each of the covered areas of the National Consortium of Telehealth Resource Centers and highlights COVID-19 updates, Medicaid reimbursement, private payer laws, professional requirements, FQHCs and more.
The CAA 2023 extends many of the major telehealth COVID-19 flexibilities in Medicare for telehealth until Dec. 31, 2024 which includes the waiver of requirements associated with the location of care and eligible distant site provider types, allowance for audio-only telehealth, and delay of an in-person requirement for mental health telehealth visits.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued the CY2023 Medicare PFS to expand access to behavioral health care, cancer screening coverage, and dental care. These new provisions are effective January 1, 2023.
The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (DPHHS) took numerous steps to expedite the adoption and awareness of telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic. When the PHE ends, some of the telehealth flexibilities will remain permanent while others will no longer apply.
