Telemedicine Strategies for COVID-19 and Beyond

July 23, 2020

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and commercial payers have relaxed rules and requirements for telemedicine during the COVID-19 pandemic, but how long will these changes last? This webinar will provide the most up-to-date information available on telemedicine regulations, rules and coding and billing protocols. You'll also hear how the AAAAI is advocating for the continuation of expanded telemedicine rules and how individual allergists can make an impact in their state.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
