Title:  Bringing MNT & DSMES to Rural SC Using Telehealth (2020)

Speaker: Anita Longan, M.S, R.D.N./L.D., C.D.E., B.C.-A.D.M.

Telehealth affords RDNs increased opportunity for providing their services to the many rural areas of SC.  Often times, the patients in greatest need, have the least access, due to a myriad of reasons, including a shortage of RDNs, in those parts of the state.

Learn how the HopeHealth Diabetes & Nutrition Institute began expanding MNT and DSMES to rural clinics in Clarendon, Williamsburg, Aiken and Orangeburg counties.  Patients have enjoyed the convenience and comfort of receiving education and counseling in their medical homes.  Telehealth has lowered barriers like cost of transportation and lost time at work.

This presentation includes a candid look at the challenges presented along the way.  CMS requirements and reimbursement will be addressed, as well. 

Learning Objectives:  

  • Discuss benefits to patients, providers, and organizations for using telehealth in rural areas
  • Explore challenges and limitations of using telehealth equipment to deliver nutrition and diabetes counseling
  • Identify CMS requirements and reimbursement for providing telehealth MNT and DSMES in rural clinics 

Learning Codes:

  • 5000 MNT
  • 5190 Diabetes
  • 3000 Nutrition Assessment & Diagnosis 
  • 6000 Education, Training and Counseling

We encourage all LDs to enroll in this service, even if you do not think that you will be providing this service initially. Across the state physicians and health care providers are looking for dietitians in their areas to connect with, so please be sure you enroll so they can find you! C

Important information for LDs enrolling in the obesity initiative:

  • To provide this service, you must first obtain a National Provider Identifier (NPI) number as an individual. An NPI number can be obtained here: https://nppes.cms.hhs.gov/NPPES/Welcome.doAfter an NPI number is obtained, you must enroll with SC DHHS/Medicaid here: https://providerservices.scdhhs.gov/ProviderEnrollmentWeb/. Please refer to the attached enrollment application guide for additional information.
  • Obtaining an NPI number happens quickly; however enrolling with Medicaid is a longer process. Please complete your enrollment ASAP in order to be able to see Medicaid participants when the initiative is officially rolled out.
  • If you currently work in a hospital-based outpatient setting, please begin to speak with your Clinical Manager or billing department to begin to prepare for this process, as it can take some time to have all of the necessary billing procedures in place.
  • After enrolling with Medicaid, please do not begin billing for this service until final approval is given (will be in a separate e-blast).

Please contact Channell Webster, Public Information Coordinator with SCDHHS with any questions about the enrollment process after viewing the webinar. She can be reached at [email protected] or (803)898-1292.
