Who are the Qualified Providers who are permitted to furnish telehealth services under the PHE waiver?



The same health care providers are still permitted to furnish Medicare telehealth services under the waiver authority during the Public Health Emergency, including physicians and certain non-physician practitioners such as nurse practitioners, physician assistants and certified nurse midwives. Other practitioners, such as certified nurse anesthetists, licensed clinical social workers, clinical psychologists, and registered dietitians or nutrition professionals may also furnish telehealth services within their scope of practice and consistent with Medicare benefit rules that apply to all services.  (Source: CMS FAQ New: 4/9/20)
