HB 602: Limiting Access to Telemedicine Access

New Futures opposes HB 602.

HB 602 would limit access to telehealth services for thousands of Granite Staters, including many facing behavioral health issues.  As proposed, the bill would prevent patients from accessing telehealth services over the phone, and limit telehealth to video-conferencing only, which can be a challenge for many who individuals and communities without strong internet access. Further, the bill proposes to do away with the requirement that telehealth services be reimbursed at the same rates as in-person care, which could restrict support for health care providers who offer telehealth services.
