Telehealth Report from NORD Covered in Managed Healthcare Executive

Posted by Valaree DonFrancesco

NORD’s recent telehealth report was featured in an article in Managed Healthcare Executive, a digital magazine from MJH Life Sciences, on 11.12.2020:

“The federal government took important steps to temporarily expand coverage for telehealth services during the pandemic, including removing barriers for Medicare patients. Plus, most states are allowing out-of-state healthcare providers in good standing to practice telehealth across state lines. Many private insurers have also temporarily expanded access to telehealth services. NORD is advocating for those changes to become permanent. “Many telehealth improvements are time-limited to the COVID-19 public health emergency declaration….our continued advocacy can help on this issue so that the positive changes that we have seen during the pandemic will endure after it ends,” the organization said.”
