Member Alert March 20: Medicaid Rules for Telehealth Services

 

The Kentucky telehealth law requires Medicaid and managed care organizations (MCOs) to cover medical services provided via telehealth to the same extent they cover medical services provided in-person. Medicaid recipients in all areas of the state and in all settings, including the recipient’s home, may receive telehealth treatment. This includes new and established patients.

In response to the COVID-19 emergency, Medicaid is relaxing its rules on telecommunications and is encouraging the use of telehealth for delivery of all appropriate types of health care services as outlined in 907 KAR 3:170.

KMA is providing the document below to members as an informational resource. KMA expresses no opinion as to the feasibility, applicability, or impact to your particular practice. The guidance outlined applies to Medicaid and managed care organizations (MCOs) only.
