GA HIMSS Lunch and Learn Webinar: Telehealth During COVID-19 | Georgia Chapter of HIMSS

April 15, 2020

On March 6, 2020, the “Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act” became law.  In addition to providing healthcare agencies with more money to address the COVID-19 outbreak, it also loosens existing telehealth restrictions in order to enhance patient access to care services. On March 17, 2020, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that they have expanded the waiver for telehealth in a few areas. The waiver of the existing rules is not restricted to existing patients but is open to new patients for the diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19 as well as other conditions unrelated to the public health emergency.
