Trump Administration Proposes to Expand Telehealth Benefits

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is proposing changes to expand telehealth permanently, consistent with the Executive Order on Improving Rural and Telehealth Access that was signed by President Trump on August 3rd. The Executive Order and proposed rule is aimed at improving access and convenience of care for Medicare beneficiaries, particularly those living in rural areas. Additionally, the proposed rule implements a multi-year effort to reduce clinician burden which is consistent with the Patients Over Paperwork initiative and to ensure appropriate reimbursement for time spent with patients. This proposed rule also takes steps to implement President Trump’s Executive Order on Protecting and Improving Medicare for our Nation’s Seniors and continues CMS’s commitment to ensure the Medicare program is sustainable for future generations.
