Video Description

The extent to which Medicare and Medicaid can directly pay for telehealth and remote patient management (RPM) programs in the U.S. varies from state to state, but there have been recent movements by lawmakers to expand that coverage. For example, positive results from telehealth investments in Mississippi have encouraged that state to allow further reimbursements. In addition, the CONNECT for Health Act bills, introduced into both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives in early 2016, seek to eliminate Medicare’s location-based reimbursement restrictions, supporting telemedicine and alternative payment models on a much wider basis.
