CMS rolls out indicator to help patients find providers who offer telehealth

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has rolled out a new telehealth indicator that helps beneficiaries and caregivers find clinicians who provide telehealth services.

The indicator will be made available on clinician profile pages on the Medicare Care Compare website and in CMS' provider data catalog.

The move comes after CMS reported that there was a 30-fold increase in telehealth services, with more than half of Medicare beneficiaries utilizing the virtual care services between March 1, 2020, and February 28, 2021.
