Thursday, July 9, 2020

The purpose of this transmittal is to inform all Medicaid providers that the Department of Health Care Finance (DHCF) will reimburse for telemedicine services delivered to a beneficiary’s home as the originating site, pursuant to emergency and proposed rulemaking issued on March 12, 2020. DHCF has authority to continue to provide these services even if there is a lapse in rulemaking authority under the Mayor’s Executive Order #20-0052 as part of its commitment to ensuring DC Medicaid beneficiaries have access to services during the COVID-19 public health emergency.
