Virtual Care For Medicare Advantage

posted by Teladoc Health

on April 9, 2019

Under the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed rule issued on October 26, 2018, Medicare Advantage plans will be able to provide “additional telehealth benefits” as basic benefits for purposes of bid submission and payment by CMS beginning in the 2020 plan year. With this landmark regulatory shift that expands reimbursement for virtual care services, CMS has opened the door for the advancement of differentiated offerings reliant on innovative care models.

A comprehensive virtual care strategy provides a pathway for health plans to expand their
Medicare Advantage offerings by:

  • Expanding access to high-quality, comprehensive clinical care to more members
  • Better engaging members to enhance and simplify their healthcare experience
  • Delivering better data integration and care coordination
  • Connecting members with a broader network of providers and referrals
  • Improving clinical quality and Star Ratings
