While Congress and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) acted quickly to implement waivers to allow for the reimbursement of telehealth services during the COVID-19 public health emergency, seniors will lose access to this important care unless Congress again takes decisive action. If passed, the Protecting Access to Post-COVID-19 Telehealth Act of 2020 will provide CMS the authority and ability to make evidenced-based decisions to ensure all Medicare beneficiaries continue to have access to these important services.
