Health Committees Give Health IT Bills Thumbs Up

Posted by @DanHinmon, Fri, Sep 15 10:12am

The House Ways and Means Committee unanimously passed legislation that would make telehealth a core benefit in Medicare Advantage plans.

“This bill is about upgrading current law to not just allow but actually to encourage the use of telehealth technology to bring the best healthcare possible to our seniors, while also working to address those skyrocketing healthcare costs,” Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.) was quoted in FierceHealthcare.
