services to patients in rural locations can also prove to be very beneficial to patients that
would not otherwise be able to visit your office. Medicare and other payers have
expanded the types of services that may be provided to beneficiaries through the use of
interactive audio and video telecommunications systems. A variety of states have also
passed laws related to the provision of services via telehealth and telemedicine.

and give you actionable tools to aid you in billing for these services.
