Maryland Department of Health has published a memo on the impact on health care providers (primarily telehealth and COVID-19 waivers) due to the extension of the federal public health emergency (published July 23, 2020). Read the memo
To prevent transmission and spread of COVID-19 disease, the Department of Health has implemented certain flexibility with respect to delivery of services covered by the Medical Assistance Program via telehealth, these include:
● Permitting a participant’s home or any other secure location to serve as a telehealth originating site for purpose of delivery of Medicaid-covered services.
● Permitting reimbursement for audio-only health care services delivered by phone.
● Permitting use of telehealth technology not compliant with HIPAA.
The Department will continue to reimburse services delivered using HIPAA-compliant technology until the end of the Maryland State of Emergency. This flexibility is not tied to the federal PHE.
