Updated 50 State Telehealth Laws & Reimbursement Policies Report: Spring 2019
From the Center for Connected Health Policy report:
"The Center for Connected Health Policy’s (CCHP) Spring 2019 release of its report on “State Telehealth Laws and Reimbursement Policies” offers policymakers, health advocates, and other interested health care professionals a summary guide of telehealth-related policies, laws, and regulations for all 50 states and the District of Columbia. States continue to pursue their own unique set of telehealth policies as more and more legislation is introduced each year. Some states have incorporated policies into law, while others have addressed issues such as definition, reimbursement policies, licensure requirements, and other important issues in their Medicaid Program Guidelines.
While this guide focuses primarily on Medicaid fee-for-service policies, information on managed care is noted in the report if it was available. The report also notes particular areas where we were unable to find information. Every effort was made to capture the most recent policy language in each state as of April 2019. Recently passed legislation and regulation have also been included in this version of the document with their effective date noted in the report (if applicable). This information also is available electronically in the form of an interactive map and search tool accessible on our website cchpca.org. Consistent with previous editions, the information will be updated biannually, as laws, regulations and administrative policies are constantly changing."

- Telehealth and its disruption of the healthcare delivery model is here to stay.
- Is your door open, closed, or somewhere in between? Telehealth and Telemedicine can be intimidating, scary, exciting, and to some completely absurd. Some close the door, and think, absolutely not, we cannot see patients and communicate with other providers through a screen.
