Early in the pandemic, Congress and the federal government allowed telehealth appointments — seeing health care providers virtually — to be covered by Medicare.
Right now, Congress is deciding whether to pass legislation that would keep covering telehealth. If they don’t, covered access to telehealth could disappear.
You can email your Senators and Representative today and tell them why access to telehealth is important to you and your family. Urge your lawmakers to support and pass H.R.2903/S.1512, the Creating Opportunities Now for Necessary and Effective Care Technologies (CONNECT) for Health Act of 2021.
This bill is important for people with Parkinson’s, and it’s also important for everyone. Private insurers typically follow whatever Medicare does, so this bill is beneficial for your family and friends, too!
