PERMANENT TELEHEALTH COVERAGE POLICY AND BILLING GUIDELINES

*Only synchronous (two-way, real-time, interactive communications) and remote physiological monitoring services identified under permanent policy may be reimbursed when provided via telehealth effective on the first day of the first month after the federal public health emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic expires.

Temporary telehealth policy will remain in effect until the switch to permanent policy occurs when ForwardHealth will require providers to follow permanent billing guidelines for synchronous telehealth and remote physiological monitoring services. Telehealth-related updates to the ForwardHealth Online Handbook will be available following the implementation of permanent policy.

PERMANENT TELEDENTISTRY POLICY

*ForwardHealth will transition to permanent telehealth coverage policy and billing guidelines for synchronous (two-way, real-time, interactive communications) telehealth services effective on the first day of the first month after the public health emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic expires.

This telehealth coverage policy will include coverage for synchronous teledentistry services. Asynchronous teledentistry policy is still in development and will be published in a future ForwardHealth Update. Temporary public health emergency allowances, including Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 flexibilities, will continue through the end of the federal health public emergency unless providers are notified otherwise in writing prior to that time.

PERMANENT TELEHEALTH POLICY FOR SCHOOL-BASED SERVICES

*ForwardHealth will transition to permanent telehealth coverage policy and billing guidelines for school-based services effective on the first day of the first month after the federal public health emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic expires.

Temporary telehealth policy will remain in effect until the switch to permanent policy occurs. Telehealth related updates to the ForwardHealth Online Handbook will be available following the implementation of permanent policy. Refer to ForwardHealth Update 2021-50, titled “Permanent Telehealth Coverage Policy and Billing Guidelines,” for additional information. This Update highlights permanent telehealth policy for school-based services in support of the child’s needs in the virtual environment.

Temporary public health emergency allowances including Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 flexibilities will continue through the end of the federal health public emergency unless providers are notified otherwise in writing prior to that time.
