COVID-19 and Telehealth Compliance

by | Apr 9, 2020

The Health Ethics Trust continues its series of free briefings on compliance issues related to the COVID-19 crisis. We thought it would be useful to set out some of the recent guidance provided by OIG, CMS, OCR, and the CDC, among others, to assist you in navigating the laws, rules and regulations applicable to your organizations. We are grouping the guidance by the type of organization to which it applies (hospitals, home health, health plan, etc.), although some of the guidance may apply across organization types. These guidance documents are not meant to cover every issue affecting a particular organization type, but may serve as a starting point for compliance issues related to COVID-19. These guidance documents are prepared with the support of Lynn Barrett, Esq., CHC, CCP a private practice attorney and former CCO who speaks at many Trust programs and is active in Compliance Resource Group, Inc. As you know, COV-19 took telehealth from marginal topic to main course. This guidance applies to the many compliance issues affecting telehealth services. Read the telehealth guidance at is a big and complex topic and will be the subject of additional guidance documents. For questions or concerns, reach us at 703-509-3734 or
