Back to Healio Data from FAIR Health, a nonprofit organization that provides information on health care coverage and insurance, indicate that telehealth use may be dropping after skyrocketing in 2020. According to the organization, the percentage of individual services or procedures provided via telehealth that were listed on an insurance claim increased from 0.15% in May 2019 to 8.69% in May 2020 — a 5,680% increase — then dropped to 5% in May 2021. Temporary rules that provide all Medicare beneficiaries with access to telehealth are in danger of expiring, an expert said. Photo source: Adobe Stock Joseph C. Kvedar, MD, the chair of the American Telemedicine Association, told Healio Primary Care that legislation is on the table to allow CMS to relax some of its rules and allow all Medicare beneficiaries to have access to telehealth even after the public health emergency. Joseph C. Kvedar Congress’ failure to act on these proposals as of this story’s posting makes it a “real possibility that telehealth will go down like a rock,” he said, adding that the health care community and others should push members of Congress to act. “If you’ve been a recipient of telehealth, and you feel like it's been helpful to you, it’s probably worth advocating to someone that you want to see it continue,” said Kvedar, who is also a professor of dermatology at Harvard Medical School. “If you’re employed, talk to human resources; if you’re a senior citizen, send your member of Congress a letter saying you want Medicare to continue to support this activity.” This week, the American Telemedicine Association is organizing the first-annual Telehealth Awareness Week to highlight the value of telehealth. The event runs from Sept. 19 through Sept. 25.
