Telehealth Coverage Expanded with Executive Order

pen

Patients and medical professionals alike are enjoying the benefits and convenience of the telehealth boom. But many are asking, how long will this trend last?

Medicare’s telehealth coverage was slated to end when the coronavirus no longer posed a threat to public health; however, a recent Executive Order signed on Monday permanently expanded telehealth benefits beyond the public health emergency. Medicare will now cover virtual medical visits at no additional cost and patient copayments can be waived for telehealth services. Some private insurers have followed the federal government’s lead and permanently expanded access to virtual healthcare. Click here to read more.

Direct-to-consumer virtual medical visits are a convenient and cost-effective way for patients to interact with their healthcare providers and clinicians. Telehealth is also beneficial for rural populations that may not have adequate access to local medical professionals.
