The Alliance for Connected Care submitted a statement for the record to the House Ways & Means Committee for the hearing, “Enhancing Access to Care at Home in Rural and Underserved Communities.”

The Alliance focused its comments on:

  1. The need for urgent action in extending Medicare telehealth provisions through December 31, 2024 to provide certainty around the future of telehealth.
  2. Committee to work with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to ensure virtual care meet the needs of Medicare beneficiaries is valuable and should be continued.
  3. Several recommendations that Committee should consider to permanently expand access to telehealth, particularly for those patients in rural and underserved areas.
  4. Recommendations for fraud, waste, and abuse.
