    We are in urgent need of information. Currently our behavioral health rehab services are provided by peers, community support, bachelors level staff and Medicaid cannot or will not pay for those when provided through telehealth.
    Looking for what other states may be doing to get these services covered.

    Thanks for your help and stay safe!

    Annette, Maryland just released guidance indicating that they are covering such services if delivered through telephone, as well as telehealth.

    Annette,
    Here is information from Iowa Medicaid authorizing telehealth, including telephonic only, for all clinically feasible and appropriate Medicaid services for all Medicaid Members. Feel free to call me if I can help!
