Telehealth is an emerging strategy to expand access to mental health and addiction treatment services across the country and alleviate provider shortages. New policy developments are afoot that aim to expand the reach of these integral methods of providing care. From recently passed legislation to remove barriers to accessing medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorders via telemedicine to reforms in Medicare rulemaking, new policy changes are helping providers and payers envision the future of health care delivery. Hear from telehealth providers and policy influencers to learn what is happening now in telehealth and what to expect in the future.
