Thank you for your leadership in expanding access to virtual care during the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE). This access has been transformational – Americans now expect that the future of our health care system includes telehealth as a key way to access health care services. Health care providers across the nation have made substantial investments in new technologies to safely treat patients during the pandemic. Now, as we work to overcome the latest COVID-19 surge, providers and health systems are preparing to meet the health care demands of the future and need leadership from Congress in charting a path forward with respect to permanent comprehensive telehealth reform.
