During this point in our history, it is more important now more than ever to expand telemedicine services. Doing so will remove the current barriers that prevent people from accessing the affordable health care they need.
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.
Send Sen. Manchin an email thanking him for leading the charge to cut red tape and give Mountaineers better access to health care at prices they can afford, and encourage him to continue supporting policies to transform health care in West Virginia.
