You've probably already considered offering remote patient care for emergencies and established patients. If you establish that your practice has the right software and remote access tools after looking at the Medicare requirements, telehealth can be an effective way to keep your practice open.
As telehealth becomes a viable option for practices, Medicare and other commercial payers will reimburse for these services. With new types of exams come new exam codes, so make sure that your staff or billing department understands the revised claims process.
Of course, there are steps you can take in your practice to make sure you reduce exposure for your staff. We encourage you to be as innovative as possible with what you have, but make sure no more than 2 people are in the practice at any given time.
