Foley & Lardner LLP partner Kyle Faget is interviewed by Healthcare IT Today in the article, “What’s a Problem, Technology, Opportunity, or Issue That Not Enough People are Talking About?”
Faget, who is co-chair of Foley’s Health Care Practice Group, said a major issue in the sector that should be discussed more is coverage and reimbursement for telehealth services.
“I think that we saw a lot of movement during COVID, we saw a lot of commercial insurers actually move toward covering more telehealth services, and we saw Medicare increase coverage for telehealth services, but we need more,” Faget explained. “In the past few days, there have been a couple of announcements about roll-backs for telehealth coverage and that’s exactly the wrong direction, we need more coverage not less.”
