A Message to the CHITREC Community Regarding Our COVID-19 Actions

State of Emergency: Coronavirus Waivers and Flexibility

Declarations of national and state emergencies related to COVID-19 have resulted in dramatic regulatory changes through 1135 waiver authority and the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) have approved rules to ensure that patients, particularly high-risk individuals, have accessible benefits while continuing recommended social distancing practices.

This webinar provides an overview of temporary flexibility in administrative and clinical procedures for Medicare and Medicaid providers and practices. A special focus will be given to expanded options for telehealth services, including details on visit types, coding and billing.
