The Alliance for Connected Care is pleased to join the National Rural Health Association in applauding this important legislation which shines a light on the need for critical access hospitals to be able to flexibly provide telehealth services to their patients. The Rural Behavioral Health Access Act should be included alongside other important telehealth changes Congress must pass before the end of the public health emergency.” – Krista Drobac, Executive Director, Alliance for Connected Care
