The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is looking to expand telehealth access for members enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans.
As part of a 362-page proposal issued on October 26, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is proposing to eliminate geographical restrictions on telehealth access in MA plans by 2020, enabling those in urban areas to use connected health technology. The proposal would also give members more locations to access care, including their own home.
