As part of ArMA’s ongoing effort to bring you the latest on telehealth regulation and payment policy, we’re asking for your help! As you know, the telehealth omnibus bill passed this year by the legislature, HB2454, created the Telehealth Advisory Committee, which will continue to review telehealth policy and reimbursement and provide recommendations to the Governor and the Legislature. Two ArMA Board members sit on this Committee, and they need your help! 

One of the Committee’s first issues is reimbursement for audio-only telehealth. We have created a survey to get your feedback on telehealth and reimbursement. This will help ArMA provide recommendations and influence ongoing policy changes. The Committee must produce a report on audio-only telehealth by December of this year, and a report on audio-visual services by June 2022. Please complete the survey as soon as possible, especially the audio-only questions, so your perspective can inform the conversation.  

If you have other feedback, you can also email it directly to us at telehealth@azmed.org.
