Providence telehealth highlighted on House floor as House passes two-year telehealth extension

Last week, the House passed the Advancing Telehealth Beyond COVID-19 Act, which would extend key Medicare pandemic telehealth flexibilities until 2024. During House floor discussions, Providence was recognized by Rep. Cathy McMorris Rogers (R-WA) for our commitment to scaling telehealth services throughout the pandemic and providing services to millions of patients. Providence telehealth visits during the pandemic increased from 70,000 visits a month, to 70,000 visits a week. The bill now moves to the Senate and Providence will continue to advocate for permanent extension of these telehealth waivers as this bill moves over to the Senate.
