Novel Coronavirus Hastens the Expansion of Remote Care in Connecticut

This week the Trump Administration announced a sweeping expansion of Medicare coverage for telehealth services in response to the COVID-19 pandemic while separately the Connecticut Department of Social Services (“DSS”) published a State Plan Amendment (“SPA”) providing Medicaid coverage for telephone visits. These are among the many actions being taken at both the federal and the state level to assist Connecticut providers and patients in the face of potentially mammoth access to care and safety issues stemming from the current public health emergency. 

We have outlined the impact on Medicare and Medicaid, as well as how Connecticut state laws affect these developments.  Please click here to read the full Alert.  We will continue to provide updates in this evolving area of the law, while questions may be directed to Pullman & Comley’s Health Care attorneys.
