Stop 2023 Telehealth Compliance Errors, Avoid Hefty Penalties
Complying with 2023 telehealth regulations will be even more of a nightmare.
Both federal and state Fraud Enforcement Officers are on high alert. Agents are being driven by the 11,000% increase for telehealth claims over the last few years and the confusion regarding ever-changing rules and PHE exceptions.
Accordingly, you’re being watched closer than ever, are even more likely to be the target of an audit and have an increased chance of being hit with massive penalties for failing to comply with telehealth regulations. CMS has dramatically raised its financial penalties for telehealth violations to 3-times the normal rate. In addition to this, you can be required to pay an additional fine of $11,665 – $23,331 for EACH identified violation.
Although federal and state governments are focusing on compliance with telehealth regulations, there are actions you can take right now to ensure your compliance and cut through the confusion of ever-changing rules and requirements.
Regulatory expert and healthcare attorney Amanda Waesch, Esq., can show you how during her live online training on Thursday, December 15th at 1pm ET. She’ll walk you through exactly how to comply with some of the most confusing elements of federal and state telehealth regulations (i.e., licensure requirements, state regulations, supervisory rules for your NPPs, etc.).
Here are just a few of the actionable tactics you’ll receive during this upcoming 60-minute online training that will help you comply with telehealth regulations:
- Steer clear of costly violations related to new 2023 telehealth coding requirements
- Master the 5 qualifying conditions for Medicare telehealth reimbursement
- Stop state enforcement of exceptions to the general telehealth licensure rules

Auditors from both federal and private payers are NOT waiting until the public health emergency waivers have expired – they are starting their audits RIGHT NOW. It is far better for you to shore up your compliance with 2023 telehealth regulations now than wait until errors (however unintentional) are discovered. Then, it’s too late, and you can be on the hook for returning overpayments and paying massive penalties.
