Telehealth continues to evolve

From the Center for Connected Health Policy, CMS just released new guidelines for telehealth, including some changes for what I prefer to call telehavioral services. 

The guidelines include,

"Beginning July 1, 2019, the SUPPORT Act will add the enrollee’s home as an eligible originating site and remove the originating site geographic limitation on existing eligible telehealth originating sites (including the home) when treating for a substance use disorder or co-occurring mental health disorder through telehealth." 

So, at least for SUD/co-occurring treatment, things are continuing to evolve. 

I recall seeing a link from you about a training...I cannot seem to find it. Can you re-post the training you put together? Thank you!
