What webinars would you suggest
Many associations have offered and are continuing to offer Telehealth webinars. ABPA, BHCOE, and other state associations
CASP has some good information on telehealth on their website
Would Britt be willing to share this slide (or all of them) with us?
I'll check when she finishes.
will a video recording of this presentation be made available on the WABA site?
So essentially RBTs could run direct sessions and take session notes to share with BCBA on errors in prompting or support needed to teach types of prompts
This is really helpful, Britt! Thank you.
Tina Patterson, Megan Miller - webinars
At the end could you copy and paste those COVID references?
Roseann, how about if we share her slides on the WABA website?
Here are the Pre-prints

Love it, such a real life moment!
What technology do you recommend?
HIPPA compliant Zoom
Bluetooth for parent training
Agree with Zoom
I’m an Iowa native!! GO Hawkeyes! :)
Do you know if your flow chart of a typical session has ever been shown to/approved by insurance medical directors. I'm just curious if all of those activities would be approved under an authorization
I noticed you put sessions are 60-90 minutes- is that standard for telehealth?
I agree with 60 minutes for Parent coaching
Not H2020 right?
Dana, can you clarify the question?
I believe that a signed informed consent document is required by state of Washington
sorry, my understanding that Medicaid is covering all codes except H2020 (day treatment), 0362T (FA) and 0373T (2 BTs)
Your correct Dana.
Dana, that is correct
Dana, that is what our billing team reported yesterday.
Yes, didn't know if he got new info since he stated he got info today
I was just on the line with them today..no changes
If a BCBA is providing direct therapy however is making modifications to programs and having parent assist, should it be billed as 97153 or 97155
Medicaid is no modifier and place of service 02
I would code that as 97155
modifier CR for some for Medicaid (if not HIPPA secure, i.e. facetime etc.)
My suggestion is not to do program mods with 97153
How about if we are still providing home sessions? Then, the code 97153 and 97155 would not be paid
this policy says telehealth is allowed during covid on page 12. it looks like it is all codes.
Question for Yaniz and Ralph. When Yaniz does a 60 minute session and does graphing afterwards are both billable under 97156?
Those need to be serape claims if they are Regence
However, all covered Applied Behavior Analysis services are considered to be medically necessary when conducted by telehealth modalities during periods of social distancing recommended by government agencies.”
from Premera policy
Sorry I was incorrect..I went back to to my notes Premera needs separate claims when their are two separate POS. Regence wants it all regardless under POS 11
Can Britt talk for a minute about any good ways to pair with learners we are already typically really paired with where our social interaction in person is the highest reinforcer
Love that advice!
How do you choose to assess skills with Telehealth? Stick to the typical ABLLS, VBMAPP, PEAK, etc?? Something different? I have some updates due and am curious how you guys are assessing skills when parents are delivering the assessments under our Telehealth guidance.
How do you test if parents have skills to be “just your hands”?
Could Ralph address the Premera policy?
Great question! I’m taking on a new client right now and will need to do all assessments through telehealth
I am SO grateful! Thank you!
Really great presentation! Thank you!
