Alliance and Others Send Letter to DEA to Advance Proposed Rules on the Special Registration Telemedicine
The Alliance for Connected Care and more than 300 participants sent a letter urging the DEA to advance the proposed rules on the Special Registration for Telemedicine under the Ryan Haight Act to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).

Without immediate action, there will be a gap between the finalization of the proposed rule and the imminent expiration of the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE) flexibilities.
