Webinar on Telehealth Policies & Expanding Health Services
Updated: Apr 22, 2020
Title: Care During Crisis: How Telehealth Policies Can Expand Health Services for Students and Families During COVID-19
Time: April 22, 2020 2-3 p.m. Central
Description: "Telehealth is a powerful service delivery innovation commonly used to support populations who are underserved by the healthcare industry, including those living in rural areas where providers of care may not be as accessible. However, during the current COVID-19 crisis, its use has dramatically expanded to keep people home and safe and prevent unnecessary exposure to healthcare providers.
Federal and state policymakers are rapidly adjusting policies and regulations to ensure that providers are allowed to use telehealth for appropriate services and receive Medicaid reimbursement. Many states are also looking at how Medicaid policies can be changed to ensure school-based healthcare providers are able to use telehealth to provide essential physical and mental health services to students.
Join Healthy Schools Campaign and Trust for America’s Health as we explore how states are adjusting their Medicaid programs to support the delivery of telehealth services—and what this could mean for students and for school-based healthcare providers."
