The Latest Medicare Waivers for Telehealth MNT and DSMT During the Covid-19 Emergency Description: The COVID-19 pandemic has changed all of our lives, including our work life. This webinar will review in DETAIL the VERY latest Medicare telehealth waivers for furnishing MNT and DSMT via a telehealth platform during the COVID-19 emergency. CMS has been modifying its original set of waivers (geared to expand telehealth and simplify the billing for) nearly EVERYDAY. This has caused a great deal of confusion among MNT and DSMT providers, to say the least! An example is if and how to use the hospital UB-04 claim form to bill telehealth MNT and DSMT. Mary Ann will continue to update her PowerPoint™ right up to the time of the webinar, so that it includes the very latest waivers for every aspect of furnishing and billing telehealth MNT and DSMT. Also, there will be plenty of time to answer the attendees’ questions during and after the 2 hour webinar. During this challenging time, let's all try to 'BE B.E.S.T'...Better, Ever Stronger, Together! Upon successful completion of this course, the participant should be able to: 1.
