Americans for Prosperity Virginia
Virginia has become a leader in technology - particularly biotechnology and life sciences, which offer the promise of life-enhancing breakthroughs. Americans for Prosperity is focused on expanding access to healthcare products and services by eliminating barriers that inhibit entrepreneurship in health care.
Telemedicine & Reimbursement Reform
Reimbursement reform: AFP will work with lawmakers to remove antiquated regulations that keep health care providers from offering innovative telemedicine services.
Through healthcare innovation, EMT's would be able to have an expanded scope of practice on what services they can provide on site and can be reimbursed for administering. Lawmakers have the opportunity to empower the Commonwealth’s EMTs by enabling them to offer the care they’ve been trained to and ensure more Virginians receive the care they need.
Telemedicine Licensing Reform: We will support legislation that allows Virginians to access telemedicine services across state lines.
Certificate of Public Need (COPN)
AFP will work with lawmakers to reform current Certificate of Need laws that require a government permission slip to set up and offer health care services to underserved communities.
