Today, 225 organizations signed a letter to House Telehealth Caucus Representatives Thompson, Welch, Matsui, Schweikert, and Johnson endorsing the Protecting Access to Post-COVID-19 Telehealth Act of 2020 (HR 7663).

The legislation includes four major and vital provisions:

  • Removing arbitrary geographic restrictions on where a patient must be located in order to utilize
    telehealth services;
  • Enabling patients to continue to receive telehealth services in their homes;
  • Ensuring federally qualified health centers and rural health centers can furnish telehealth services; and
  • Establishing permanent waiver authority for the Secretary of Health & Human Services during future emergency periods and for 90 days after the expiration of a public health emergency period.
