Changes to Texas telehealth laws appear to be moving forward

By Admin | March 22, 2017

Texas is currently one of the last states to require that physicians and patients meet in-person before allowing any future telehealth services be allowed. However, mHealth Intelligence reports that a compromise bill is heading towards the Legislature that would eliminate this mandate.

Spearheading this change is Sen. Charles Schwertner (R-Georgetown), who seems very optimistic about the law getting changed.

I think we will have a bill very soon,” Schwertner told the Houston Chronicle.
