– mHealth Intelligence

Manatt’s Fatema Zanzi, a partner with our Manatt Health team, discussed healthcare reimbursements with mHealth Intelligence.

The publication reviewed the potential issues and improvements that telehealth and mHealth may see in the new year. Several professionals in the industry elaborated on the developments in the healthcare realm, discussing the topics of greater integration of virtual care, telehealth reimbursements and more.

“One of the biggest issues to positively affect adoption of telehealth in 2019 is increased reimbursement available by Medicare,” said Zanzi. “Specifically, Medicare for the first time will be loosening geographic restrictions so that dialysis and stroke patients may receive care via telehealth.”
