State Telehealth Laws and Reimbursement Policies Report, Spring 2022

Our semi-annual report has gone digital

 The Center for Connected Health Policy (CCHP) is releasing its Spring 2022 Summary Report of the state telehealth laws and Medicaid program policies catalogued in CCHP’s online Policy Finder tool. Prior to Spring 2021, this same information was released at least twice a year in the form of a 500+ page PDF report titled, “the State Telehealth Laws and Reimbursement Report” since 2012. With the transition to the online Policy Finder, users are able to navigate each state’s updated information as soon as CCHP makes it available. Additionally, the information from the online tool can be exported for each state into a PDF document using the most current information available on CCHP’s website. CCHP plans to continue to produce these bi-annual summary reports of the status of telehealth policies across the United States in the Spring and Fall each year to provide a snapshot of the progress made in the past six months. CCHP is committed to providing timely policy information that is easy for users to navigate and understand through our Policy Finder. The information for this summary report covers updates in state telehealth policy made between January and mid-April 2022.

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.
