Is Affordability Stopping You from Using Telehealth?

Posted by Chessie Skates on Oct 8, 2013 12:25:00 PM

There are several factors that can make the initial start-up cost for Telehealth seem daunting. However, new solutions are being conducted to help healthcare organizations find assistance. Your organization can provide added services to your community if your organization could implement a Telehealth program. 

Grants and Financing

There are grant programs offered by HRSA and USDA which may fit your organization’s Telehealth placement plan.  Identifying possible grantees and defining whether you have a project to collaborate on, may allow your organization to decide the feasibility of your proposal.

Solutionz Conferencing Inc. has grant specialists that can help collaborate with your organization to help navigate the maze of funding.

Reimbursements

Today we see a broader acceptance by the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare of Telehealth practices (CMS). Telemedicine is seen as a cost effective method to increase access to quality healthcare versus the face-to face method.

Certain states have required that private insurers should force Telehealth services to be available when they offer comparable coverage using face-to face care.
