Wein Comments on New Technology-Based Communication Codes

11 June 2019 Solution Reach News
Of Counsel Emily Wein was quoted in a Solution Reach article, “New Technology-Based Communication Codes Can Help Boost Patient Satisfaction,” about Medicare’s decision to begin paying for two services that provide patients with affordable and convenient options in lieu of a face-to-face visit with their doctor.

Although the payment amounts are nominal, the main impetus behind providing these services is to boost patient satisfaction and enhance health care quality and efficiency, Wein said. “These codes illustrate CMS’ willingness to support providers who are increasingly using technology to make care most cost-effective and satisfactory to patients,” she said.
