COVID-19

Originating Site

Originating site refers to the physical location of the patient. During the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE), Medicare and many Medicaid programs expanded the types of originating sites that a patient could be at while receiving services via telehealth, to include the home and other locations.  These policies are temporary and most will expire at the end of the PHE.
