Telepractice Evidence Map 

Reimbursement for services provided via telepractice includes state mandated coverage by private insurance (21 states; ATA, 2013b); state Medicaid and Medicaid-funded programs, variable by state (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services [CMS], n.d.a); Department of Defense and Veterans Health Administration telehealth programs (U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, 2013), and contractual/private pay with organizations and individuals. Currently, CMS does not recognize rehabilitation professionals, including SLPs and audiologists, as telehealth providers for Medicare reimbursement (CMS, 2012).
