State Activity

The ATA works alongside members, allies, and partner organizations to identify and resolve state-level barriers to the expansion of telehealth. State policymakers are more interested than ever in leveraging telehealth and digital health technology to expand access to care, improve patient outcomes, and address rising health care costs. One of the most effective means of influencing policymakers is the collective voice of the ATA membership.

Learn more about state legislation that impacts the expansion of telehealth and virtual care and how you can to take action. State legislators listen to their constituents, particularly subject matter experts from their districts. Whether writing letters in support of specific bills, understanding pending legislation, or making a statement on social media, we are here to help.
