Foley & Lardner LLP Partner Rachel Goodman is quoted in the MobiHealth News article, “Bill could pave the way for prescription digital therapeutics reimbursement,” discussing the Access to Prescription Digital Therapeutics Act of 2022. The bill aims to amend the Social Security Act to provide Medicare coverage and reimbursement for prescription digital therapeutics.

Goodman explained that while there may be accessibility concerns for patients without a computer or reliable internet, the benefits of the legislation outweigh the concerns.

“Ultimately, people of the Medicare population can have trouble accessing care because of transportation and any number of other reasons,” Goodman said. “So, the idea that they would actually, with sufficient instruction, be able to access care from home is going to promote access to care.”
