Telehealth (or telemedicine) is highly regulated, and as a result, has been difficult to fully adopt. Over the past week, CMS has made changes to broaden access to telehealth services. The new flexibility allows you to see patients remotely immediately using typical commercially available technology (Facetime, Google Hangouts Meet, Skype, Zoom). Reimbursement is the same rate as an office visit. You can also be reimbursed for assisting patients via your patient portal.
The 56th Annual Meeting and 41st Ophthalmic Personnel meeting
will be VIRTUAL.
Planning is underway with details to be emailed to POS members and past attendees of the Ophthalmic Personnel Meeting.
