Maine Reimbursement for Telehealth

Maine will reimburse for services provided using telehealth. The MaineCare Benefits manual outlines the rules and procedures that must be followed. Here is a brief excerpt from that manual, Section 1.06-2

  1. Telehealth is defined as interactive, visual, real-time telecommunication. Telehealth must be a medically appropriate means of provider-patient interaction. Services provided via telehealth must utilize equipment that is capable of two-way video and audio (i.e., telephone, facsimile interactions and electronic mail delivered services are not reimbursable). Telehealth must be a medically appropriate means of provider-patient interaction.
  2. There must be a compelling benefit for the member in order for telehealth services to be appropriate. The benefit must be related to physical, social or geographic issues that make delivering the service in person difficult. It must not be for the convenience of the provider.
