Interest in and acceptance of telehealth services continues to grow.
Recent events, like the COVID-19 pandemic and the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, have put more pressure than ever on federal and state legislators to promote access to telehealth services.
However, the greater use of telehealth services also increases the potential for fraudulent behavior and enforcement activity.
Providers should continue to monitor developments in federal and state laws, regulations, and policies to capitalize on telehealth opportunities while staying compliant with applicable laws.
Epstein Becker Green’s Telemental Health Laws App is easy for behavioral health providers to download and use. Through the app, providers get an overview and detailed breakdown of legal trends impacting telehealth and telemental health services. The app also includes an intuitive interface and state-by-state guides.
