Senate bill would let Medicare test telehealth expansion

From Modern Healthcare:

A bipartisan bill introduced in the Senate last week would let Medicare experiment with covering more telehealth services.

Under the Telehealth Innovation and Improvement Act, sponsored by Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Col.) and Sen. Gary Peters (D-Mich.), selected hospitals would be allowed to test offering telehealth services to Medicare beneficiaries in cooperation with the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation.
