    On March 20, 2020, Governor Hogan issued Executive Order No. 20-03-20-01 to authorize the reimbursement of audio-only health care services and to grant further flexibility regarding the use of HIPAA-compliant telehealth technology during the state of emergency. 

    Please see the following memoranda for guidance:

    ​Posted 3.17.2020

    The Secretary of Health has temporarily expanded the definition of a telehealth originating site under COMAR to include a participant’s home or any other secure location as approved by the participant and the provider for purpose of delivery of Medicaid-covered services. The purpose of this expansion of regulatory authority is to ensure individuals can access certain health care services in their own home while mitigating possible risk for transmission of COVID-19. This expansion applies to services delivered to a Medicaid participant via fee-for-service or through a HealthChoice Managed Care Organization (“MCO”). This expansion will remain in place until further notice by the Department. Medicaid distant site providers delivering services via telehealth to a participant in their home must continue to comply with all other requirements of COMAR 10.09.49 and the Maryland Medicaid Telehealth Program Manual.  

    Please see the full text of the Secretary's order here: COVID-19 #1, March 12, 2020
