Central Library of Updates

COVID-19 and Telehealth Updates

Over the course of the last 2-3 weeks, you have been inundated and overwhelmed with emails about COVID-19, Executive Orders, travel bans and legislative Telehealth updates. We created a digital library that is a central collection of all updates from the Academy, CPTA, APTA, Private Practice Section, CDC, Department of Labor, CMS, ACRM and other organizations. We update this library daily (sometimes several times during the day) so that you have the latest information at your fingertips. Please share with your colleagues! Read the latest updates!

CMS Rule Stopes Short of Allowing PTs to Conduct Telehealth Services

CMS has made no related changes to allow PTs to actually provide services through telehealth, even though the codes have now been okayed for that use. The apparent contradiction may be partly because the new rules were written prior to the passage of the CARES Act last week. In the midst of a pandemic, access to telehealth has become of critical importance to ensure the safety of patients and their physical therapy providers. The Creating Opportunities Now for Necessary and Effective Care Technologies (CONNECT) Act is bipartisan legislation that would do exactly that by expanding the use of telehealth coverage under Medicare. APTA is pursuing the CMS disconnect, urging the agency to use its waiver authority to expand telehealth recognition to PTs. APTA offers an easy-to-use template to add your voice to the push for change.
