PAN is working with coalition partners and Members of Congress on legislative solutions to removing current policy barriers to the practice of telemedicine. Below are pieces of legislation that PAN has endorsed or commented on in the 114th Congress:
TELEmedicine for MEDicare Act of 2015
PAN has endorsed the TELEmedicine for MEDicare (TELE-MED) Act of 2015 (H.R. 3081/S. 1778). Introduced by Reps. Devin Nunes (R-CA) and Frank Pallone (D-NJ) and Sens. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) and Joni Ernst (R-IA), the bill would allow doctors to see Medicare patients in different states via telehealth technology without having to go through the arduous and expensive process of obtaining multiple state licenses.
