Neurosurgery Supports Telehealth Expansion Legislation

On June 6, the AANS and the CNS joined the Alliance for Connected Care in sending a letter from 188 health care and patient support organizations urging the House Committee on Ways and Means to advance the Telehealth Expansion Act of 2023 (H.R. 1843/S. 1001) to the full House of Representatives for consideration. The Telehealth Expansion Act of 2023 is a bipartisan, bicameral bill that would make permanent the pandemic-era policy that enabled employers to provide telehealth services on a pre-deductible basis to individuals with high-deductible health plans coupled with a health savings account. The committee passed the bill on to the full House of Representatives following a markup of the bill on June 7.
