Neurosurgery Supports Telehealth Expansion Legislation

On Oct. 31, the AANS and the CNS joined more than 165 organizations in sending letters to the House and Senate leaders supporting the passage of the Telehealth Expansion Act (H.R. 1843/S. 1001).

On June 7, the House Committee on Ways and Means advanced the bill to the full House of Representatives.
