Reimbursement for Telemedicine Could Get Easier

Telehealth and telemedicine continue to be a part of the legislative and regulatory agenda. More than 10 pieces of federal legislation have been introduced in 2017 that aim to reduce the regulatory burdens facing reimbursement for telemedicine and telehealth. For example, the CHRONIC Care Act, which includes telehealth provisions, was passed in the Senate in late September and now awaits approval in the House. On the regulatory front, the Veterans Administration (VA) has proposed a rule that would allow the VA to preempt state licensure, registration, and certification laws to allow VA physicians to provide telemedicine services across state lines. IDSA continues to monitor federal and regulatory changes to telehealth and telemedicine and will keep members updated.
