IMPORTANT: Medicare Telemedicine Healthcare Provider Fact Sheet

CMS just issued the below information about telehealth for Medicare beneficiaries. We want to get it to you right away:

  • CSWs can provide teletherapy to beneficiaries if the client is in their home.
  • They can also see new or existing patients.
  • Telephone/audio only does not appear to be reimbursable; CSWs must use a video conferencing platform.
  • HIPAA requirements are also eased.

Read the link to get complete details and let us know if you have questions.

We will provide further updates to our national webpage ( on this so you can direct people there starting this afternoon. We also will provide more information on these developments as they evolve.
