Medicare Reimbursement & OTP Guidance

Dear CSAM Members,

Attached are website references for guidance on 2 issues that have become relevant because of the COVID-19 national emergency. This first is related to CMS reimbursement for telemedicine visits. The second is regarding management of patients in opioid treatment programs. Updates on these and other important issues will be available at the ASAM coronavirus website: https://www.asam.org/advocacy/practice-resources/coronavirus-resources

Best wishes,

Tony Albanese, MD, DFASAM
CSAM President
