WEDI Applauds CMS
September 3, 2020
WEDI applauds CMS’ proposal to improve remote access to healthcare through the 2021 Physician Fee Schedule Proposed Rule (PFS) that seeks to make some of the emergency expansion of telehealth services permanent. WEDI urges the industry to submit comments on the proposed rule by October 5, 2020 to assist CMS in creating appropriate policies on telehealth. Visit the WEDI website here for a list of web resources on telehealth emergency rules and for a paper on “Overcoming Barriers to Broader Adoption of Telehealth”, which identified items in the current waivers as barriers. WEDI has just concluded a survey on the usage of telehealth since the COVID-19 public health emergency and those results will be review on an upcoming WEDI webinar.
