Host Tom Foley talks to Tom Leary, SVP of Government Relations for HIMSS, about the "Telehealth Cliff." With the public health emergency having been extended to the end of 2021 there is a push to normalize telehealth reimbursement and the rules as to what validates a telehealth encounter. The 4 primary points are: 1) remove obsolete restrictions on the location of the patient and the provider, 2) maintain and enhance HHS authority to determine appropriate providers, services and modalities for telehealth, 3) ensure federally qualified health centers, critical access hospitals and rural health clinics can furnish telehealth services after the PHE. and 4) remove restrictions on medicare beneficiary access to mental and behavioral health services offered through telehealth.
