Telehealth Bills Move to Governor’s Desk

Posted on June 11, 2020

Michigan Capitol BuildingThe Michigan Senate voted unanimously June 4 to support a package of bills that would expand opportunities for providers to receive Medicaid payment for telehealth services. House Bills (HBs) 5412 through 5416 were previously passed in the House of Representatives and have been sent to the governor to be signed into law. The MHA has supported efforts to expand access to telehealth services to help address the nation’s physician and nursing shortage and improve outcomes for patients.

The five bills were introduced by Reps. Hank Vaupel (R-Fowlerville), Douglas Wozniak (R-Shelby Twp.), Frank Liberati (D-Allen Park), Phil Green (R-Millington) and Mary Whiteford (R-Casco Twp.). For more information, contact Sean Sorenson at the MHA.
