Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) cosponsored H.R. 2556, the CONNECT for Health Act. This bipartisan legislation would expand the use of telehealth and remote patient monitoring (RPM) services in Medicare, toward the goal of cost savings and increasing quality care.

“Rural communities like ours will greatly benefit from enhanced use of telehealth services, and I am pleased to support this bipartisan legislation that will help our seniors access the care they need,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “As the author of the CHIME Act and a strong advocate for Community Health Centers, I am pleased this legislation is supported by Hudson Headwaters and the National Association of Community Health Centers. I will continue to work in Congress to increase access to affordable, high quality health care in our district.”
