It was an active year for state telehealth legislation in 2018. Among 39 states and DC, 65 legislative bills passed in the 2018 legislative session, up slightly from 62 bills in 2017. Additionally, 49 telehealth related regulations were finalized in 38 states related to telehealth. The enacted legislation this year focused mainly on broadening Medicaid policy, establishing regulatory requirements and enacting interstate licensure compacts. In general there has been a slowing of enacted legislation addressing private payer reimbursement of telehealth. Adopted regulation focused on telehealth practice standards by professional boards.
In the first quarter of 2018, there has been significant activity around telehealth policy. The Center for Connected Health Policy (CCHP), will provide an update on federal and state telehealth policy actions as well as to what other issues we may see for the rest of 2018. Join CCHP’s Christine Calouro as she discusses these developments and takes your questions.Download the Powerpoint
