Preventive medicine services via telehealth
Provider news | Tuesday, November 10, 2020
Preventive medicine service (PMS) visits are an essential component of pediatric primary care. It is important for children to continue to receive PMS during the current Public Health Emergency. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) strongly recommends a telehealth and a second (in-person) visit to complete all components of the PMS visit. Refer to SCFHP’s guidance on how to conduct and bill for these PMS visits combining telehealth and in-person activities to ensure that services are provided timely.
