State Action: Telehealth
Telehealth is an important tool for expanding access to health care services for patients in the most vulnerable communities. Increasingly, states are exploring options for expanding the scope of the telehealth services for which they will provide Medicaid reimbursement. While most states provide reimbursement for some form of telehealth care under both Medicaid fee-for-service and managed care, policies vary across states and are frequently updated. States likely will continue looking to one another for models as these policies evolve.
