Consider Telehealth as an Alternative Method to In-Person Visits During COVID-19

Primary care and behavioral health providers are currently receiving a high volume of appointment requests and are trying to balance providing access to services with containing potential exposures to the COVID-19 virus. Many offices are considering implementation of telehealth visits. Click here for the COVID-19 Resources on PFK’s website that include telehealth policies from Ohio Department of Medicaid, CareSource, Molina and UnitedHealthcare Community Plan. Please note that Ohio Department of Medicaid is filing emergency rules to expand and enhance telehealth options for patients and providers, in particular to allow more patients to be served in their homes rather than traveling to addiction and mental health treatment centers.
