Many Americans, particularly during this pandemic, have benefitted from expanded access to telemedicine services. There are a number of bills in Congress that seek to make permanent changes in the rules to allow more access to telemedicine, but there are also pushes to mandate that insurers reimburse for telemedicine at the same rate as in-person visits (called payment parity). These crony price-fixing schemes are designed to thwart competition and keep healthcare costs high, and they must be opposed.
Write to Congress and tell them to oppose efforts to mandate payment parity for telehealth as they consider bills to expand access to this type of medicine.
