Making the Most of New Payment Strategies for Telehealth and Virtual Care: Improving Reimbursement Under the New Rules of the Game
11 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Meeting Room 310
Healthcare reform is driving much uncertainty about how care will be reimbursed. But what is known is that the current fee-for-service model does not work in a virtual care strategy. With unequitable government restrictions, health plan hesitancy, and health insurance exchanges exempt from certain access mandates, how does payment for services delivered via TeleHealth actually work? With the new strategy of paying for outcomes rather than procedures and office visits that may or may not end in improvement in the patient's health status, the focus on fee-for-service goes away and is replaced with new innovative payment models. This session reviews fee-for-service, its advantages and limitations, and moves the participant into the current state of pay for performance, value purchasing and quality over cost models of healthcare reimbursement.
