ForwardHealth Temporary Telehealth Policy to Remain in Effect

Tuesday, July 28, 2020  
Share |
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services is in the early stages of gathering feedback from stakeholders regarding Wisconsin Medicaid’s permanent telehealth policy. Telehealth is a way for patients to receive care in ways other than in person. This can include video or other types of remote communication used to deliver care to a patient or transfer medical information during:

  • Health care delivery.
  • Diagnosis.
  • Consultation.
  • Treatment.

ForwardHealth’s temporary telehealth policy will remain in effect until permanent policy is published. ForwardHealth has implemented temporary telehealth policy in response to COVID-19, pursuant to Wis. Stat. § 49.45(61). ForwardHealth will publish additional guidance about the topics addressed in the ForwardHealth Updates listed below when the temporary policies transition to permanent telehealth policy. For information on temporary telehealth policy currently in effect, please refer to the following ForwardHealth Updates: 


Additional updates regarding telehealth policy will be communicated in the future.
