Our top priority is the health and safety of all participants during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We will continue to closely monitor regulations and guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and will notify you should the designated in- person meetings be deemed a Virtual meeting. Currently, the next in-person meetings are scheduled for: January 7, 2021 and February 10, 2020.
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.
