NPF Submits Coalition Letter Urging Congress to Enact Telehealth Policies During the Lame Duck Session


NPF, along with 28 other patient advocacy organizations, submitted a letter to congressional leadership urging action on telehealth policies during the lame-duck session. Congress has returned to Washington for the “lame duck” session and legislative action is more important now than ever to address the role telehealth will continue to play through the end of the COVID-19 pandemic and in the future. There are currently several pieces of proposed legislation before Congress that seek to establish and inform what telehealth services will look like post-pandemic. Our organizations previously agreed on a set of policy principles to inform our analysis of proposed telehealth policy, and we believe several policy provisions included in currently proposed legislation are critical to addressing challenges for patient access to telehealth services during the remainder of the Public Health Emergency (PHE) and beyond.
