Kentucky, Other States Expand Telemedicine Access
Following in the footsteps of states such as New York and Utah, both Kentucky and Missouri’s state legislatures have recently enacted policies to expand coverage for telemedicine-based services within each state. Although each is taking a different path for implementation and reimbursement, the main hurdle of convincing each state government to adopt this technology has been achieved. According to Jonathan Linkous, Chief Executive Officer of the American Telemedicine Association, “this is a true win-win scenario. First, it is a big victory for patients in Kentucky and Missouri, who now have greater access to the best possible care. It’s also a win for the treasury and taxpayers in those states, who will save significantly on public healthcare costs.”
