CSWA - Medicare Guidance on Telemental Health Coverage - 3-9-20

09 Mar 2020 11:43 AM | CSWA Administrator (Administrator)

I just received guidance from CMS on whether we can be reimbursed for telemental health beyond the accepted treatment in rural areas.  Their response is attached.

Basically the answer is no at this time. I recommend calling CMS at1-866-288-8912, x3 to ask for more guidance.

CSWA is developing a Legislative Alert to send to members of Congress to request an expansion of coverage for telemental health during this health crisis.
