Maryland’s Medicaid telehealth law opens new opportunities for young people

On April 3, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan signed SB 502, requiring the state’s Medicaid program to allow the provision of mental health services using telehealth. This expanded definition will allow reimbursement for mental health texting and online chat systems. Maryland’s young people will benefit from increased access to mental health services during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond. Unlike many other pandemic-related changes, Maryland’s new definition of mental health telehealth will not expire after the COVID-19 emergency. #covid-19
