Telehealth Resources

Due to the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, both the state and federal administrations have issued temporary regulatory waivers and new rules to equip the healthcare system with flexibility to respond to the pandemic.  Included in the temporary changes are increased access to telehealth to ensure patients have access to physicians and other clinicians while keeping patients safe at home.  Many other payers have expanded coverage for telehealth during the pandemic.  This web page is a compilation of resources to assist you in understanding the changes in telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic.
