Broadened Access to Medicare Telehealth Services and NCBAM’s “Hope Line”

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has broadened access to Medicare telehealth services so that beneficiaries can receive a wider range of services from their doctors without having to travel to a healthcare facility. These policy changes build on the regulatory flexibilities granted under the President’s emergency declaration. CMS is expanding this benefit on a temporary and emergency basis under the 1135 waiver authority and Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act. The benefits are part of the broader effort by CMS and the White House Task Force to ensure that all Americans—particularly those at high-risk of complications from the virus that causes the disease COVID-19—are aware of easy-to-use, accessible benefits that can help keep them healthy while helping to contain the community spread of this virus. Learn more here.

Also, NCBAM’s “Hope Line” offers help and hope to those suffering from social isolation and loneliness—whether or not it is related to virus quarantines. The tollfree Hope Line is open 9 AM to 9 PM, Monday through Friday, at (866) 578-4673. Trained staff members and volunteers respond with a friendly voice, a compassionate ear, and missional hearts to pray with and for people. Learn more here.

 
 

Sincerely,
North Carolina Assisted Living Association
