As a medical billing/management company, we are given the task to follow up with insurance companies to get the claims paid for any charges turned in to us. Some insurances - like Medicare - make that task easy by having strict regulations in place that we follow and, by doing so, they pay easily and on time. Others will loosely follow guidelines and hold or even deny the same claims, and we are forced to contact them to get that claim paid. Find out how we help get those claims paid.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) made a number of changes that allowed Medicare beneficiaries to access a wider range of telehealth services without having to travel to a health care facility. CMS is proposing to make some of these changes permanent.
This review will be based on Medicare Parts B and C data, and will look at the use of telehealth services in Medicare during the COVID-19 pandemic. It will look at the extent to which telehealth services are being used by Medicare beneficiaries, how the use of these services compares to the use of the same services delivered in-person, and the different types of providers and beneficiaries using telehealth services.
