The Telehealth Reimbursement Coalition Needs Your Help. Join Us!

The Telehealth Reimbursement Coalition needs your help. This is a unique research opportunity—and one that we can’t undertake on our own.

Led by CTeL, and bringing together experts from throughout the industry, the Coalition will be collecting data and research on the cost impact of telehealth. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO), the nonpartisan entity that assesses the potential fiscal impact of proposed legislation, needs access to quality data that shows telehealth as either generating cost savings or being cost neutral to the federal budget. We need this data in order to help the CBO understand why expanded reimbursement makes good financial sense—at a time when advocates have increasingly asserted that the limitations that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) place on reimbursement are holding telehealth back.

This data will be submitted to the CBO by October 2017. While we are already in the process of gathering research, we need more to help us make the most compelling possible case for reimbursement.

You can learn more about the Coalition in this earlier postFor those interested in participating, please fill out this survey detailing the kind of information you’re able to provide.

We all know that telehealth has the potential to change the way in which health care is delivered—and we need your help in gathering the necessary research to make our case for expanded reimbursement. Join us as we work to shape the future of telehealth in the U.S.
