APWCA collaborated with the Alliance of Wound Care Stakeholders to submit comments to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that supported the following COVID-19 provisions:

  • Reimbursement for telehealth at the non-facility rate, as appropriate, when submitted with a 95 modifier and the place of service corresponding to where that service would have been provided had the service been rendered in person
  • Expansion of telehealth services generally
  • Choice of medical decision making or total time when determining the level of office/outpatient E/M furnished via telehealth
  • Ability to provide virtual check-ins, telephone E/Ms, and e-visits to both new and established patients;
  • Ability to provide direct supervision via real time interactive audio and video technology; and
  • Coverage and payment for telephone evaluation and management services
