Due to COVID-19, telehealth is now a necessity, rather than a complementary service, to operate business across the healthcare spectrum. The CARES Act passed by Congress in March 2020 in response to COVID-19 included key provisions to eliminate geographical restrictions for telehealth use in Medicare Advantage plans and ultimately expand access to telehealth and other connected technology services. Additionally, in a response to promote telehealth services, many health plans waived cost-share requirements for their members, while expanding paid telehealth services to providers. With these shifts, telehealth companies were catapulted into the healthcare spotlight, and telemedicine has become big business.
