HIA Endorses the Protecting Access to Post-COVID-19 Telehealth Act of 2020 (H.R. 7663)


Health Innovation Alliance has long been a champion of telehealth and today we, along with over 250 joining organizations, endorsed the Protecting Access to Post-COVID-19 Telehealth Act of 2020

This bill includes four major provisions that will help ensure that Medicare beneficiaries continue to have access to telehealth services following the end of the public health emergency. These include: 

  • 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.

The Health Innovation Alliance applauds the House Telehealth Caucus for leading on this important issue. While there is more work to be done, and we will continue to advocate for reforms that further enhance access to telehealth, we hope that you will also be able to support passage of the Protecting Access to Post-COVID-19 Telehealth Act of 2020.
