Updates on E-Visits and Telehealth
for Outpatient Therapy Services, Part 1 & 2

As a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, CMS has allowed the use of virtual visits, specifically ‘e-visits,’ for physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech-language pathologists. To help you better understand these new guidelines, we’ve partnered with Rick Gawenda and Nancy Beckley to host a webinar series covering how to put these new guidelines into practice so you can continue to support and care for your patients while maintaining appropriate social distancing protocols.

These webinars are part of the MedBridge enterprise solution. Our complete solution of professional development and patient engagement tools helps organizations attract and retain staff, elevate quality of care, and improve outcomes.

Updates on E-Visits and Telehealth for Outpatient Therapy Services: Part 1

In part one of this webinar series, we discuss the guidelines of what these e-visits can include, billing and reimbursement amounts for the e-visits, as well as documentation and compliance requirements. This discussion also includes the latest information on the ability to provide telehealth services to your Medicare beneficiaries and commercial insurance carrier patients.

Updates on E-Visits and Telehealth for Outpatient Therapy Services: Part 2

In part two of the series, we continue to discuss the significant changes that CMS has implemented and provide up to date information straight from CMS and the OIG associated with telehealth and e-visits.
