NCPA August 13, 2020

CMS has updated its guidance and removed regulatory barriers preventing pharmacists from furnishing diabetes self-management training services via telehealth. Accredited and recognized diabetes self-management training programs eligible to bill Medicare Part B directly for DSMT services may now furnish and bill for DSMT services provided via telehealth during the COVID-19 public health emergency. For more information, see this resource about DSMT services via telehealth by the Association of Diabetes Care & Education Specialists.
