AHA Telehealth Advocacy Fact Sheet

The American Hospital Association (AHA) recently released its fact sheet, The Future of Telehealth – Protecting Patient Access to Care, that they shared with the Hill. AHA urges Congress and the Administration to ensure flexibilities remain in place after the public health emergency, as well as to reimburse virtual services on par with in-person care.

Included in this fact sheet is information for legislation to make telehealth flexabilities permanent, such as removing geographic and originating site restrictions and expanding eligible practitioners. Also included in this fact sheet the AHA urges Congress to ensure that hospitals and health systems receive adequate reimbursement from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for the substantial upfront and ongoing costs of establishing and maintaining their virtual infrastructure.
