Extension of Telehealth Modernization Act of 2024

The Telehealth Modernization Act of 2024, a bipartisan, bicameral legislation, is progressing through Congress, which includes the following:

  • Extension of certain telehealth flexibilities removing geographic requirements and expanding origination sites for telehealth services and extending them through the end of December 31, 2026 (was scheduled to expire 12/31/2024).
  • This legislation also allows and extends audio only telehealth services, through December 31, 2026 (was scheduled to expire 12/31/2024).

This is great news for patients and providers to maintain access, convenience and to provide cost effective established evaluation and management services. The legislation has been sponsored by bipartisan members of Congress. If you recall, Dr. Larry Bucshon, a member of the Committee on Energy and Commerce and Congressman James Comer, Chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Accountability, discussed this extensively and worked on extending it further. While ASIPP has spearheaded to make this a reality, numerous organizations have worked tirelessly led by AMA.

The only deficiency is that it is not yet permanent. We will continue to work on this issue.
