Description: The COVID-19 emergency is prompting many ABA healthcare providers to consider delivering services remotely for the first time or in an expanded way. That necessitates communicating with payers regarding authorizations or approvals, amended policies, billing codes and modifiers, documentation, and perhaps changes in client treatment targets, goals, and procedures. Laws, regulations, and ethical standards pertaining to remote delivery of ABA services must also be taken into account; some of those are changing rapidly in response to the pandemic. This webinar will address those topics and offer suggestions based on the best information available to the presenters at the time. There will be an opportunity for participants to submit questions.
