Telehealth Sign-on Letter to Congress

February 10, 2022

Dear Majority Leader Schumer, Minority Leader McConnell, Speaker Pelosi, Minority Leader McCarthy:

"On behalf of the undersigned organizations, who represent hundreds of thousands of physicians and medical students across the country, we are writing to share our recommendations for legislation expanding telehealth flexibilities beyond the declared public health emergency (PHE) for the COVID-19 pandemic. We are grateful that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and Congress have enacted reforms to expand the use of telehealth during the public health emergency, but we remain concerned that many of these flexibilities are set to expire at the expiration of the PHE, or soon thereafter. We urge you to extend these flexibilities, some on a permanent basis, and pass reforms, as outlined below, to ensure that our physicians have the tools and resources they need to continue providing increased access to care for their patients through telehealth."
