Take Action Today: Ask CMS to Cover Expanded PT Telehealth Services

Wednesday, April 1, 2020  

 

The CARES Act, signed into law on March 27, gives broad waiver authority to the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to waive the restrictions on the types of providers who may provide and bill for telehealth services furnished to Medicare beneficiaries during the COVID-19 emergency period. But it does not REQUIRE the Secretary to take such action.
That's why we're asking YOU to tell CMS to expand the types of providers eligible to furnish telehealth services under Medicare to include physical therapists and physical therapist assistants during the COVID-19 public health emergency.
