During this point in our history, it is more important now more than ever to expand telemedicine services. I am writing to ask you to put quality health care at Americans’ fingertips by supporting the expansion of telemedicine. Doing so will remove the current barriers that exist to affordable, accessible and innovative health care.
This allows physicians, nurse practitioners, clinical psychologists and licensed clinical social workers to offer telemedicine to Medicare beneficiaries in any healthcare facility, as well as from their homes. Now, patients have better access to care remotely.
Expanding telemedicine services will reduce the burden on the health system, improve access to health care and increase social distancing. Encourage legislators to continue to back measures that give Americans greater health care access and options.
