CCHP releases 50-state scan of telehealth laws, regulations and reimbursement policies
This report offers policymakers, health advocates, health care professionals and others with an interest in telehealth a summary guide of the most recent information available about how each of the 50 states (and the District of Columbia) defines, governs, and regulates the use of “telehealth” or “telemedicine” technologies in the delivery of health care services. Remarkably, we found that each state has its own unique set of telehealth policies. Some states have incorporated policies into law, while others have addressed issues such as definition, reimbursement policies, licensure requirements etc. in their Medicaid Program Guidelines. In some cases CCHP discovered inconsistencies with policies within the same state. CCHP will continue to monitor telehealth policy developments in each state and will update this report on a regular bases. Please note that this report is produced for informational purposes only.
