New PACE Guidance
CMS issued a new document applicable to PACE organizations, allowing them to submit updates on participant diagnoses for risk adjustment payment purposes via telehealth, rather than in person, visits. Notably, it limits this extension to Telehealth to audio and video, not telephone only. I am submitting a follow up to CMS to see why that is, since they otherwise are allowing telephone only contact.
