Commercial Coverage of Telehealth: Policy Priorities Before Millions Lose Access to Care
Join the American Telemedicine Association (ATA) on Wednesday, October 20 from 1:00-1:45pm EST for an exciting discussion on issues surrounding the commercial coverage of telehealth. The 35 million Americans with HDHP-HSAs who have benefited from pre-deductible coverage for telehealth services since the onset of the pandemic stand to lose access to coverage on December 31, 2022, unless Congress takes action. Likewise, unless Congress moves before the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) ends, Americans benefitting from the PHE determination of telehealth as an excepted benefit could lose access to care they are currently receiving.
Hear from Congressional staff, industry experts and patient advocates about what is being done to get Congress to act on these vital policies before it is too late.
