The Alliance for Connected Care submitted a statement for the record to the Senate Finance Committee, Subcommittee on Health for the hearing, “Ensuring Medicare Beneficiary Access: A Path to Telehealth Permanency.”
The Alliance focused its comments on:
- Recommendations for a permanent telehealth expansion that Congress should consider, including steps to ensure equitable access;
- Other non-Medicare recommendations that we believe Congress should prioritize; and
- While we generally do not believe additional telehealth guardrails are needed, we offer some options that would be operationally feasible for health care organizations to implement without significantly disrupting patient access to care.
