State Telehealth Laws and Reimbursement Policies Report, Fall 2021

Our semi-annual report has gone digital

Historically, our twice-yearly updates to the “State Telehealth Laws and Reimbursement Policies” report have been published as a PDF document, and included the telehealth policies for all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Earlier this year, we transitioned exclusively to our new and improved online Policy Finder. This online database allows the CCHP team to easily update each state’s information whenever there is a change, instead of waiting for the spring and fall to roll out the report. Now, you can look up (or download a PDF) of the most up-to-date information on each state from that state’s page.  We hope this transition will result in more timely policy information that is easier for you to navigate and understand. 

Read the Executive Summary

We will continue to produce bi-annual summary reports of the status of telehealth policies across the United States to provide a snapshot of the progress made in the past six months.  The information for this summary report covers updates in state telehealth policy made between June and September 2021.

Impact of Audio-only Telephone in Delivering Health Services During COVID-19 and Prospects for Future Payment Policies & Medical Board Regulations

CCHP conducted a small study on the use of audio-only to treat Medicaid patients in a federally qualified health center (FQHC). Selecting a group of states that at the time the research was being conducted had the highest number of COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people per the CDC, we examined each state’s Medicaid policies in fee-for-service that existed pre-pandemic, what was allowed during COVID-19, and what audio-only policies may have been made permanent.
