Jacksonville, FL – One Call has announced a new free webinar taking place tomorrow where Thomas Novelli, VP of Government Relations & Public Affairs and Susan Curley, Director of Government Relations will lead a roundtable discussing how COVID-19 has prompted regulation changes for telehealth services, specifically telerehab.
COVID-19 has become a complex disruptor within the workers’ compensation industry. As work-from-home and social distancing orders were enacted across the country, it created challenges for providers on how to facilitate treatment for injured workers.
One Call noted that telehealth services have become the primary medical solution in the face of the pandemic, forcing lawmakers and regulators to modify regulations in order to facilitate remote patient care. As a result, telehealth laws and regulations have changed more significantly in the past two months than they have in the past ten years.
One area of tremendous reform is within telerehab, remote physical therapy services. Policy changes continue to be made on both federal and state levels, resulting in confusion over availability and coverage.
Key items for discussion include:
- History of telehealth and workers’ compensation
- Key legislative and regulatory changes
- What regulatory changes mean for the treatment of injured workers
- Future of telehealth in the workers’ compensation industry
The webinar is scheduled for Tomorrow, May 20, 2020 from 1-2 pm ET.
