Medicare Advantage Expands Telehealth Services

JAMA. 2019;321(20):1964. doi:10.1001/jama.2019.6674

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently finalized a new policy that will allow Medicare Advantage plans to offer additional telehealth services beginning in 2020.

As part of their supplemental benefits, Medicare Advantage plans historically have been able to offer more telehealth services than Original Medicare. The new policy makes it more likely that Medicare Advantage plans will offer additional telehealth benefits outside of supplemental benefits.
