Surprisingly, CMS did not receive any provider requests to add new telehealth services this year. Fortunately, CMS took it upon itself to propose three new codes. This article discusses the proposed new codes, explains how to submit public comments on the proposed rule, and describes how to submit requests for new telehealth services. The public comment period is open through September 27, 2019. More on Telehealth Reimbursement Here >
