Telehealth Services

The recent bill passed in NYS, S3293 amends subdivision 3 of section 2999-cc of the public health law by expanding Telehealth services for children. The expansion authorizes the delivery of Telehealth services at any public, private school or charter elementary or secondary school, or child care program or center within the state by allowing these sites to be included in the definition of originating sites for the delivery of primary care services to young children without leaving the school or care setting.

The regulation is effective immediately and is a welcomed enhancement to a comprehensive care delivery system in NYS.
