TQ TeleConnection- October 2018
Newly Released: Updated & Redesigned Fall 2018 Edition of the 50 State Telehealth Laws and Reimbursement Policies Report
An updated Fall 2018 edition of CCHP’s “State Telehealth Laws and Reimbursement Policies” Report is available today! The Fall 2018 edition offers policymakers, health advocates and other interested health care professionals a freshly redesigned compendium of state telehealth laws, regulations and Medicaid policies. The new report features the same detailed telehealth policy information (with references) found in previous reports, but in a fresh new format with policies grouped into three primary categories (Medicaid Reimbursement, Private Payer Laws, and Professional Regulation). This report was made possible through generous support from the Health Services & Resources Administration and the California Health Care Foundation.
The report is being released in conjunction with the launch of CCHP’s redesigned website, which includes its interactive telehealth policy map version of the report, redesigned to correlate with the three primary policy categories listed above. CCHP’s website also now incorporates a new publicly available and free telehealth legislative and regulatory tracking U.S. map tool. The new tool allows users to easily view pending legislation and regulation as it progresses through state and federal legislative sessions and is updated on a daily basis with direct access to primary bill and regulatory text documents.
