Center for Connected Health Policy Report Details Key Policy Changes in Telehealth
“According to a recent report from the Center for Connected Health Policy (CCHP), various changes in telehealth policies have occurred since spring 2022, including five states adding Medicaid reimbursement for audio-only services, which brings the total number of states and territories paying for this modality to 35.
Recently, the rise in demand for telehealth services amid the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in several policy changes at the federal and state levels. To track these changes, CCHP reviews state telehealth laws and Medicaid program policies several times a year.
In the report from the fall of 2022, CCHP found several changes that occurred since the spring of 2022. All data in the report came from an examination of state laws, state administrative codes, and Medicaid provider manuals from July to early September 2022.
