Transmittal 20-07-Medicaid-Reimbursable Telemedicine Services: Reimbursement for Healthcare Services Delivered to a Beneficiary in their Home via Telemedicine Documents

Friday, March 13, 2020

The purpose of this transmittal is to notify all Medicaid providers of changes to the standards governing Medicaid reimbursement of health services provided to a beneficiary in their home via telemedicine pursuant to new rules promulgated on March 12, 2020 and December 13, 2019. On March 12, 2020, DHCF adopted an emergency and proposed rule that established authority for Medicaid reimbursable services to be delivered in a beneficiary’s home to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of residents is not threatened by a lapse of in-person access to covered healthcare services due to the threat of infection with COVID-19. On December 13, 2019, DHCF issued final rules to establish the authority to provide Medicaid reimbursable services via telemedicine. This transmittal provides additional guidance related to these new authorities to support adoption.
