Commercial Insurance Coverage for Telehealth Services

Telehealth and other virtual services are critical to reducing exposure to the COVID-19 virus and ensuring continuity of care during this public health emergency (PHE).

To help surgeons navigate and integrate virtual services into their practices and enhance their ability to safely care for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, the ACS has developed resources that describe coverage and reimbursement rules for virtual services from both Medicare and private payors; Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) privacy and security rules applicable to telehealth during the PHE; and various telehealth products available for use by physicians.
