Real Clear Health: Make the COVID-19 Telehealth Reforms Permanent

Despite the overwhelming popularity of telehealth among patients and providers, and its overwhelming growth over the past decade, most of the reforms to telehealth are only temporary, with barriers to access once again erected once individual states declare the public health emergency over. To combat this, and ensure patients can continue to access telemedicine, states across the country need to enshrine these temporary reforms into law. Failure to do so will leave patients worse off and facing significantly worse health outcomes than what is currently available.
