  • Telehealth is the use of videoconferencing and phone communications to support and promote long-distance patient healthcare. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the federal government had strict rules in place limiting Medicare payments for telehealth services. Generally, Medicare would only pay for telehealth services if the patient lived in a rural area with limited services and if the doctor provided the services from a specific site (i.e. physician’s office or hospital).
