Health Policy Trends to Watch: Health Equity and Network Adequacy

What health policy trends are we watching? Let’s discuss! Zach Snyder and Kate Deiters explore the different ways states are making the connection between health equity and network adequacy.

Developing Health Policy Frameworks for Telehealth Credits and 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 network adequacy standards. 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.

Our white paper provides insights into on how policymakers and regulators can address the challenges of incorporating telehealth credits into network adequacy standards. In this white paper, we aim to:

  • Provide a historical context for Telehealth Network Adequacy Credits
  • Outline examples of Telehealth Network Adequacy Credits

  • Provide data-informed recommendations for best practices on creating parameters for regulators and payers wanting to engage with Telehealth Network Adequacy Credits

  • Present a working analytical model that regulators can use to develop their own data-informed Telehealth Network Adequacy Credit policy
