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.
