Certain Medicaid and CHIP services may soon be delivered using telemedicine, telehealth, and audio-only methods on an ongoing basis. This includes services that have been made available through telemedicine, telehealth, and audio-only methods during the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE) as well as other services.
With input from advisory committees and other stakeholders, HHSC staff are evaluating services to determine whether this method of delivery is cost-effective and clinically appropriate.
This work will be completed in phases and will continue throughout 2022. You can find additional information about HHSC’s evaluation framework here.
