Tele-Medicine To Expand In PA

A Senate bill which would expand telemedicine in Pennsylvania was passed by the House Professional Licensure Committee Monday. The bill would allow for the regulation of telemedicine and require insurance coverage for telemedicine services. Philadelphia Representative Joanna McClinton is hopeful the full House will pass the bill. Supporters say the legislation would also help to reduce travel time and costs. The Senate unanimously approved the telemedicine bill in June.
