Telemedicine: As we noted in yesterday’s Morning eHealth, the House budget deal – while more limited in scope from a funding perspective – includes many adjustments to telehealth policy. The Senate’s deal is much the same: increasing access to telemedicine services for Medicare Advantage enrollees, encouraging care providers to expand use of telemedicine for remote care, and promoting it for stroke patients. Krista Drobac, executive director of the Alliance for Connected Care, tells POLITICO the group is “excited to see the language in both versions of the budget deal.”
