State Telehealth Laws and Reimbursement Policies Report, Fall 2023

The Center for Connected Health Policy’s (CCHP) Fall 2023 Summary Report of the state telehealth laws and Medicaid program policies is now available as well as updated information on our online Policy Finder tool. The most current information in the online tool may be exported for each state into a PDF document. The following is a summary of the current status of telehealth policy in the states given these new updates. Historically, CCHP has provided these bi-annual summary reports in the Spring and Fall each year to provide a snapshot of the progress made in the past six months. Moving forward, the summary report will transition to being released once per year in the Fall only, with three separate rounds of updates being made to each jurisdiction in the Policy Finder per year. CCHP is committed to providing timely policy information that is easy for users to navigate and understand through our Policy Finder. Additionally, in 2020 the COVID-19 category was added to CCHP’s online policy finder. The temporary COVID-19 policies were never factored into this report since they were temporary and contingent on the existence of COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE) designations. Since the federal COVID-19 PHE officially ended on May 11, 2023, and most state PHE designations have ended, the policy finder’s COVID-19 section will be phased out of the next round of updates occurring in Winter 2023- 2024. Policies that have been made permanent or extended for multiple years have been (and will continue to be) incorporated into the other appropriate relevant sections of the policy finder. The information for this summary report covers updates in state telehealth policy made between late May and early September 2023.

While this Executive Summary provides an overview of findings, it must be stressed that there are nuances in many of the telehealth policies. To fully understand a specific policy and all its intricacies, the full language of it must be read utilizing CCHP’s telehealth Policy Finder.


State Telehealth Policy: Summary and Findings from the Fall 2022 Webinar Series

As the COVID-19 pandemic moves towards its third year anniversary, some are seeing an eventual end to the public health emergency (PHE).  In the Fall 2022, the Center for Connected Health Policy (CCHP) held two webinars in its popular state telehealth policy series that focused on what the telehealth policy landscape may look like in a post-PHE environment.  The Fall Series expanded the scope of subject matter as the sessions focused on federal issues, specifically what might be expected in a post PHE environment, and what providers needed to keep in mind when operating in multiple jurisdictions.
