New Billing Disclosures and Telepsychology Rules to Take Effect in 2022
Legislation passed in December 2020 is set to take effect next month. The rules require providers to notify clients in advance of expected costs. Please see a recent legal issues article from the American Psychological Association for additional details and a template for good faith cost disclosure.
In September 2021, the Board of Examiners passed a new chapter to their Rules and Regulations which specifically address telepsychology. These rules have gone into internal review and a mandatory waiting period, but will likely be in effect sometime in early to mid 2022. They are fairly detailed and mandate a risk-benefit analysis for clients who receive telehealth services. They they also outline detailed guidelines for informed consent. These rules cover Tennessee licensees who are providing telehealth services to Tennessee clients and Tennessee licensees who are providing telesupervision to trainees. A draft of the proposed rules can be found here Telepsychology rules.pdf
