ATA Supports the 21st Century Care for Military & Veterans Act
Date:11/18/2013

Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 18, 2013

The American Telemedicine Association (ATA) voices its support of the 21st Century Care for Military & Veterans Act, H.R. 3507. This bipartisan bill would improve healthcare accessibility using telehealth technology for active-duty service members, veterans, retirees and dependents under TRICARE, the Department of Veterans Affairs and the CHAMPVA healthcare programs.

This important Congressional plan would create parity in coverage between telehealth and in-person health services for these patient populations. It would also allow healthcare providers to provide services across state lines with one state license.

“Parity for telehealth and interstate access are two important concepts to extend to all federal healthcare programs,” said Jonathan Linkous, chief executive officer for the American Telemedicine Association. “We applaud this effort to remove artificial barriers to care in the federal government.”

H.R. 3507 was introduced by Reps. Scott Peters (D-CA 52), a member of the Armed Services Committee, Mike Thompson (D-CA 5), co-chair of the Military Veterans Caucus in the House of Representatives, and Gregg Harper (R-MS 3), also a member of the Military Veterans Caucus.
