During the COVID-19 Pandemic, through California Medical Association (CMA) advocacy, both public and private health plans were pushed to expand their coverage and reimbursement for services provided via telehealth. As long as the nation continues to be in a public health emergency, all of these policies remain in effect.
Policymakers at the state and federal level are making decisions that will shape the future of telehealth for years to come. CMA has published a Telehealth Policy Update that summarizes what has already been done and provides some next steps that physicians can watch for throughout 2022.
