The third installment in Curi’s COVID-19 webinar series, “Telehealth Pre- and Post-COVID: Regulations, Telepresence, and Finding Success in This New Normal,” will take place next Thursday, May 14 at noon. American Telemedicine Association Board Chair Tania Malik and Robert Caudill MD, Director of Telemedicine and Information Technology Programs at the University of Louisville School of Medicine, will talk through how practices can incorporate telemedicine into their operations, how it can help them deliver revenue in the midst of declining patient visits, and best practices for coding and reimbursement.

All Curi recommendations are based on current CDC criteria at the time of publication. CDC guidance for SARS-CoV-2 infection may, or may not, be adopted by state and local health departments to respond to rapidly changing local circumstances. Providers should always check with their local health department to see if the CDC’s guidance on any given topic has been modified (particularly if more restrictive) from the CDC’s recommended guidelines. Follow this link https://www.cdc.gov/publichealthgateway/healthdirectories/index.html for contact information to your state/local health department. If local recommendations vary from those of the CDC, and you are unsure what recommendations to follow, then it is safer to follow the more restrictive guidelines/recommendations.
