Telehealth expansion in response to COVID-19 should be made permanent

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many temporary changes were made to federal and state policy to expand telehealth. The U.S. Senate health committee’s Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-TN) has proposed making some of these changes permanent. In particular, he supports permanently allowing physicians to be reimbursed for telehealth appointments conducted from the patient’s home or other locations. Alexander also supports expanding the number of telehealth services reimbursable by Medicare. #covid-19 #mentalhealth
