WHA Offering Webinar on New Medicaid Telehealth Act

February 13, 2020

WHA members can register here for a free 45-minute webinar on Thursday, Feb. 20 at 10 a.m. that will review Wisconsin’s new telehealth law, 2019 Wisconsin Act 56.

The new telehealth act was WHA-developed legislation resulting from the recommendations of WHA’s Telehealth Work Group to better align Wisconsin’s Medicaid statute with past, current and future advancements in telehealth.

The telehealth act webinar will highlight coverage changes in Wisconsin’s Medicaid statute regarding telehealth services, including when these changes take effect and special provisions regarding the delivery of behavioral health services via telehealth. The webinar will also discuss next steps regarding implementation of the statute, including discussions between the Department of Health Services and the WHA Telehealth Work Group.

Hospital and health system telehealth leaders, reimbursement leaders and managers, behavioral health leaders, physician leaders, legal and compliance directors, chief operating officers and others involved in developing and overseeing telehealth delivery models are invited to join the webinar.

For registration questions, contact Allison Taylor.
