Resource Summary: In the COVID19 environment technology can be used as a complement to face-to-face services, and also as a service on its own. Technology options can be especially useful for people with depression or suffering from distress, and when there are difficulties in physically meeting with tenants.
Resource Details: The challenges and rewards of billing Medicaid for services is no different if utilizing a telehealth option. Providers will still need an electronic health record, adhere to state administrative regulations around staffing, develop contracts with managed care organizations or the state, and develop budgets based upon projected billable revenue. This brief provides definitions and resources to help supportive housing providers and Health Centers build their capacity and knowledge on how to speak the same language, collaborate effectively and leverage telehealth resources to support their service participants.
