Medicare considers telemedicine – Bankrate.com
Medicare celebrates its 50th anniversary this month. In honor of that momentous occasion, Congress is considering changes that would modernize the program, including allowing it to pay for a broader array of telemedicine treatments to more people.
Currently, Medicare is restricted to paying for a limited amount of telemedicine used to deliver health care to rural areas, although the technology has been in use for many years in settings where Medicare hasnt been a frequent payer.
