Wein Quoted on Barriers to Telehealth in Oncology

20 April 2020 Oncology Times News

Of Counsel Emily Wein was quoted in an Oncology Times article, “ACCC Focuses on Evolving Changes in Cancer Care Delivery,” about highlights from the 2020 Annual Meeting & Cancer Center Business Summit of the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) in Washington, D.C.


Wein, speaking during a telehealth session at the annual meeting, said both Medicare and Medicaid have complex telehealth rules and regulations, and noted that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is trying to address telehealth regulatory issues. But she also noted that licensing is a state requirement, so where the patient is located generally dictates what licensing requirements are needed for reimbursement.
