Telehealth Benefits Expanded for Medicare Beneficiaries
There are rapid changes being made to telehealth amid the COVID-19 outbreak. It was recently announced that telehealth benefits have been expanded for Medicare beneficiaries. The change will enable beneficiaries to receive a wider range of health care services without having to travel to a health care facility. Medicare will temporarily pay physicians and other health care providers to provide telehealth services for beneficiaries residing across the country. For more information, please view the fact sheet and frequently asked questions documents.
