Telemedicine Emergency Response Policy Guideance updated July 8, 2020

Attached is an updated telehealth guidance document dated July 8, 2020 v1.2. This version replaces the telehealth guidance dated March 23, 2020 v1.1. We have updated some language and included additional 1115 waiver services that were effective May 21, 2020.  Please review this document carefully.  The Division highly encourages Executive Directors and Clinical Supervisors to meet with staff to go over this guidance.  


Please see our DBH Communications page for all announcements around COVID-19.


Thank you.
