    Topic:  Legislative Advocacy Kickoff with the House Telehealth Caucus
    While Congress and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services acted quickly to implement waivers to allow for the reimbursement of telehealth services during the COVID-19 public health emergency, seniors will lose access to this important care unless Congress again takes decisive action.

    This Thursday, (7/23) at 9:30 am ET, ATA CEO, Ann Mond Johnson will deliver remarks on behalf of the ATA in support of pending telehealth legislation including HR 7663, "Protecting Access to Post-COVID-19 Telehealth Act of 2020". Register to join at: https://bit.ly/2WHJ5qd

    House Telehealth Caucus leaders. Representative Mike Thompson (D-CA), David Schweikert (R-AZ), Peter Welch (D-VT), Bill Johnson (R-OH), and Doris Matsui (D-CA) introduced HR 7663, "Protecting Access to Post-COVID-19 Telehealth Act of 2020" which takes major strides to address the priorities outlined in a stakeholder letter to Congress by 340 organizations in support of continued telehealth access. The legislation addresses most of the priorities in the letter and would ensure all Medicare beneficiaries have continued access to telehealth services.
