Blue Cross and Medicare Telehealth Services are interoperate with each other, which is why Blue Cross Telehealth is able to provide services to Medicare telemedicine services, Blue Cross Medicare Telemedicines is able see the Medicare telecare network and Medicare Medicare telehospital service provider is able interact with Blue Cross Blue Cross.
In other words, if you are receiving Medicare telemedical services, then you will be able to interact with any Blue Cross provider, regardless of the telehealth provider you are connected to.
However, it is important to remember that, as with any interoperable telehealth service, interoperability is not automatic.
If you are not receiving telehealth treatment from a Blue Cross or Medicare TeleMedicine provider, then Blue Cross does not have access to the Medicare Telemedical Service Provider’s (MSPP) telehealth data and it does not receive any billing information from MSPP.
This means that Blue Cross, and its customers, do not have complete access to all the information and services that MSPPs provide, including billing information and telehealth access.
For example, a Blue Rose TeleMedician may not provide Medicare telephonic services, as they do not provide the Medicare service or Medicare tele health information that MMPPs provides.
If your Blue Cross has not been able to receive Medicare tele medical services because they have not been connected to a Blue Health TeleMedic, then they may not be able access the information, and therefore cannot provide services for you.
Blue Cross is not an MSP and does not provide telehealth.
Medicare TeleMed is a telehealth network that is managed by a different telehealth entity.
Blue cross and Medicare is a part of a telemedically managed system, and the MSPs are separate entities.
BlueCross is an interoperable, telehealth managed network, Medicare is an MFP managed telehealth system.
