Physical, Occupational & Speech Therapy: Telehealth State Resource Guide

Learn more about the telehealth end dates for physical and occupational therapists.

Since the coronavirus outbreak, the telehealth rules and requirements are rapidly changing for each payer. We understand that many private practice owners are trying to wrap their head around what options they have to continue taking care of patients during this difficult time. From parity laws, appendix references, state mandated orders, modifiers, place of service codes, e-visits and specific CPT codes, the telehealth billing requirements being released each day are very specific to each payer.

Our team has created a state-specific resource guide to provide physical, occupational and speech therapists with an up-to-date list of the resources that are being released daily. If you would like to bookmark this page, we will continue to update this guide as new details become available to provide the most recent updates from state and local officials, insurance payers, and professional organizations.

We welcome any and all information that you have pertaining to your state that can be shared with fellow physical, occupational and speech therapists. We are all in this together.
