Healthcare providers are facing a confusing landscape these days as they try to chart reimbursement opportunities for telehealth programs. Federal programs such as Medicare come with many requirements and restrictions, and each state has its own rules for Medicaid and private payer coverage. But on both federal and state levels, the tide is turning in favor of more comprehensive coverage.

Foley & Lardner’s Thomas Ferrante will provide a look at the telehealth reimbursement landscape across the United States, with a focus on recent decisions by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to make telehealth a covered service and its implications for state-level programs. Additionally, Ferrante will explore future opportunities for hospital and health systems to expand their presence in telemedicine and connected health
