State Telehealth Laws and Reimbursement Policies Report, Spring 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.

This year, we’ve 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 information through February of 2021.

An Analysis of Private Payer Telehealth Coverage During the COVID-19 Pandemic

This report builds on CCHP’s COVID-19 research and resources by detailing the efforts that major U.S. health insurance carriers took to expand telehealth access in response to the pandemic.
