ICYMI: Omnibus Spending Package Extends Select Telehealth Flexibilities

Mar 17, 2022

Legislation Extends Many Key Telehealth Flexibilities, But Many Telehealth Waivers Are Tied to Unaddressed PHE Legislation

Washington, D.C. – In case you missed it, the latest #TelehealthTuesday visual from the Partnership to Advance Virtual Care (PAVC) focuses on the FY 2022 omnibus appropriations package, which includes provisions to extend certain telehealth flexibilities related to the public health emergency (PHE) for 151 days—approximately five months—after the PHE ends.

In the graphic, PAVC outlines the key omnibus telehealth provisions within their broader telehealth policy context and telehealth flexibilities not addressed in the bill that would require further congressional action to be extended or made permanent.
