House Energy & Commerce Health Subcommittee holds hearing on telehealth access

On April 10, the House Energy and Commerce Committee's Health Subcommittee held a hearing on "Legislative Proposals to Support Patient Access to Telehealth Services." During the hearing, lawmakers heard from a panel of witnesses including patient and Medicare beneficiary advocates, digital health care providers, and academics. Witnesses and lawmakers discussed 15 bills aimed at increasing patients' access to telehealth coverage. There was broad bipartisan agreement on the need to extend Medicare telehealth flexibilities, with most of the debate centered on ways to monitor and ensure care quality for a virtual service and the cost associated with extending or making permanent the current waivers.
