Academy Advocates For Telehealth Extension In Every State

03/20/2020 - The Trump Administration recently offered increased flexibility for the delivery of health care to Medicare beneficiaries through expanded telehealth. While the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has included medical nutrition therapy in its list of services that can be provided and billed via telehealth, individuals covered by Medicaid and commercial payers are dependent on the action of individual states to allow for similar flexibilities.

In a letter sent yesterday to the leaders of the National Governors Association, Larry Hogan of Maryland and Andrew Cuomo of New York, the Academy encouraged all governors to extend telehealth to Medicaid and other insurers in every state.
