Developing Health Policy Frameworks for Telehealth Credits and Network Adequacy Standards
Practical Approaches for Integrating Telehealth Credits into Network Adequacy Standards
Considerations for Health Policymakers and Regulators
Telehealth services have transformed healthcare delivery. In response, health plan regulators have incorporated telehealth credits into health plan network adequacy standards. While this was a positive step, using a blanket approach to applying these credits toward network adequacy standards may not be the ultimate solution.
Incorporating telehealth credits into network adequacy standards requires practical and strategic approaches that take into account the unique needs of different areas. By doing so, regulators and policymakers can enable effective healthcare provision and address the growing desire for improved healthcare accessibility.
