Telehealth Policy and Reimbursement Resources

This section provides detailed information on state and federal rules and regulations that address or impact telehealth practice including the Employee Retirement and Income Security Act (ERISA). Please note, this information is not legal advice. Always consult with legal counsel when addressing legal and regulatory considerations.

A word about the COVID-19 pandemic

The PHE for the Covid19 was first declared at the Federal level on January 31, 2020 by the Secretary for Health and Human Services. The PHE has been extended every 90 days since then. On January 31, the Administration announced that the PHE would officially end on May 11, 2023.

Most of the telehealth flexibilities granted during the PHE are extended until 155 days after the end of the PHE.

Thanks to the passage of HR 2617 better known as the Omnibus budget bill, some of the telehealth flexibilities granted during the PHE were extended through December 31, 2024. Not all flexibilities were included in this continuance.

It is important that CMS provide guidance to reconcile the expiration of the telehealth flexibilities with the provisions in the Omnibus bill. It is important for telehealth providers keep a close watch for updates from CMS in order to plan ahead for adjustments to their services, policies and procedures.

Here are the potential resolutions for the telehealth flexibilities once the PHE is ended:

  • The flexibility ends the day following the end of the PHE.
  • The flexibility ends 155 days following the end of the PHE.
  • The flexibility ends on December 31, 2024.
  • The flexibility or a version of it is made permanent by Congressional action or CMS rule making.
