Telehealth – What Will The Payers Change Post-COVID-19? Let’s Ask Them: An OPEN MINDS Executive Roundtable

July 14, 2020

July 14, 2020, 4 – 5 PM EDT

Access the SLIDES & RECORDING for this executive roundtable

Join this interactive and exclusive executive roundtable where national payer representatives will discuss anticipated payer response to telehealth supports as the nation reopens to the new post-crisis normal. Is telehealth here to stay? What restrictions are likely to re-appear and what will be forever changed? Payers—regional, national, and across the public sector and commercial sector—will share their perspective on the impact of COVID-19 on behavioral health utilization, changes made to support consumers and provider organizations during the era of social distancing, and anticipated response through the remainder of 2020 and into the future. Payers will also share ongoing measures to support and promote telehealth, such as consumer cost-sharing waivers and reimbursement for telehealth services not previously supported prior to COVID-19.

Join us for a dialogue with the payers—be prepared to go on camera. Mark your calendar for July 14 at 4 pm EDT and RSVP (use the form on the right) to get the Zoom link. Send your questions for the OPEN MINDS consulting team ahead of time—just email us at info@openminds.com.
