Q. Will telehealth services be reimbursed at the same rate as traditional services?

A. Telehealth services will be reimbursed at the same rate as traditional services, unless there is already an existing telemedicine code that follows one of the agency's benchmarks, such as Medicare, or a different rate is stated otherwise in a bulletin or guidance sent out by the agency. The South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHHS) will continue to provide additional guidance as needed and will publish fee schedules as they are available for expanded telehealth services during this emergency response period.
