On November 15, 2022, the Alliance for Connected Care and more than 350 organizations signed a letter urging Congress to extend the telehealth provision that allows employers the flexibility to offer telehealth services pre-deductible to employees with a high deductible health plan coupled with a Health Savings Account (HDHP-HSA). The letter reminds congressional leaders that without legislative action, employers will be required to charge employees more to access telehealth services, creating a barrier to care, including telemental health.
Without action by Congress, this provision will expire on December 31, 2022. New action is needed to ensure Americans do not lose access to these important telehealth benefits again come 2023.
