Federal Telehealth Flexibilities in Private Health Insurance During the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency: In Brief [February 14, 2023]
Library of Congress. Congressional Research Service
Kehres, Katherine M.
From the document: "The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) public health emergency (PHE), first declared by the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on January 31, 2020, was most recently renewed on January 11, 2023, and the Biden Administration has announced plans to end the emergency on May 11, 2023. 1 Prior to the COVID-19 PHE, there were no federal requirements that private health insurance plans offer telehealth coverage, nor were there prohibitions on such coverage. Certain other federal requirements presented difficulties for private health insurance plans that sought to quickly add telehealth coverage as part of their response to the COVID-19 PHE. [The sections of this document] describe the federal flexibilities created in response to such issues and when those flexibilities are to end."

Citing HSDL Resources

Documents from the HSDL collection cannot automatically be added to citation managers (e.g. Refworks, Endnotes, etc). This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
