If you want lots of details on Medicare billing as it relates to FQHCs, visit the Bi-State Medicare Guidance page, which is regularly updated and contains links to key CMS documents.

If you want to fact check the claim that this is the worst public health disaster since the advent of the modern telephone system, check out this Fast Company article on the telephone system that was in place during the 1918 Spanish flu and which, unfortunately, relied on an army of operators to manually make phone connections.

Thank you to Northern Counties Health Care for their sponsorship of this special series on telehealth and COVID-19.
