Official guidance and best practices related to telehealth and e-visits could change rapidly as the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve. For the most current information from APTA, see our main telehealth webpage and visit our Coronavirus webpage.

APTA has developed templates for you and your patients to use in advocating to your payers  — private, Medicare Advantage, and Medicaid (both fee for service and MCOs) — for coverage of telehealth furnished by PTs and PTAs to ensure that patients continue to have access to the rehabilitative care they need after the COVID-19 pandemic ends. Instructions are included at the top of the letter.
