Faget Quoted in Politico on Massachusetts Push for Telehealth Parity
05 February 2019
Special Counsel Kyle Faget was quoted in Politico’s Morning eHealth newsletter about Massachusetts Bill HD3057 which puts reimbursement for telehealth services on par with in-person appointments.
Lawmakers appear to be "revitalizing" their push for coverage parity, Faget said. If passed, such measures could "open the gateway for telemedicine in Massachusetts." Unlike more rural states that have already made it easier for remote patients to get coverage for virtual treatment, Massachusetts is "constantly criticized by everybody for failing to be a pioneer in the telemedicine landscape."
