Press Release
The Telehealth Act Packages Numerous Republican Bills to Make Telehealth More Affordable, Accessible, and Effective

Congresswoman Ann Wagner (R-MO), Chair of the House Suburban Caucus, released the following statement after she introduced the Telehealth Act, a package that includes nine telehealth bills introduced by Republican lawmakers. 

“The pandemic has mandated we build a more accountable and responsive health care system to address the significant challenges facing our nation during this crisis.  Missourians need to speak to their doctors on their terms, and this legislation makes health care more accessible by permanently expanding telehealth services and providing options and more affordable coverage for families across the country.  This patient-centered legislation bridges several Republican health care priorities designed to improve access to telehealth services so patients, especially during the ongoing pandemic, can manage their personal health safely and effectively.”
