State Telehealth Resource Including Medicaid Reimbursement, Private Payer Laws, and Occupation-Specific Regulations  

March 30, 2020 State Relations News

The Center for Connected Health Policy has released a state telehealth resource that outlines state Medicaid reimbursement, the existence of any private payer laws, as well as any occupational licensing board specific regulations with regard to the provision of services via telehealth.  

At this time, approximately 24 states address telepractice in their state audiology scope of practice in some way. However, the individual state approaches to the topic vary from a definition, policy statement/guidelines to specific regulations. 

At this time, there are 11 states that have specific regulations in place with regard to the provision of audiology services via telehealth (AR, DE, IL, KY, LA, MD, MT, NM, OH, OK, TX). 

In the resource document, locate your state and refer to the “Professional Regulation” tab to access any audiology-specific regulations. You can also search an interactive version on CCHP's website
