A deep dive on the latest trends in federal lobbying activity and legislative reform in the US
next level topics and write-up marissa. consider asking omers to support you and christina with a designer for custom graphs (something like prof g for eg, since this content ultimately supports lead gen). the gifs distract from your excellent content. this substack is in my top 3 for health content.
Indeed. The quote from Krigstein resonates and IIRC modern variations seem to be of the form:
"Inside the DC Beltway, if you aren't seated at the table for lunch, you are probably on the table for lunch."
Perhaps the future TeleLobby and TeleLunch services required for states to compete, lure, attract, recruit, and land telehealth practice concentrations (that sell in a frictionless manner to all the other 49 states) will sprout forth from services like lunchclub.ai or similar groups?
Other than the Ryan Haight Act, what are the other laws that have been relaxed because of the COVID-19 pandemic? Are there specific CPT codes that have been introduced during the pandemic related to telehealth that's at risk of being revoked post-pandemic/COVID? What are some telehealth services that payors are hesitant to reimburse for post-pandemic world.
This was a great read. ++ on actually getting the reform right - this is so important given the complexities of legislation that impacts virtual care delivery.
Rarely have explorations into the regulatory weeds made me feel so seen! I do suspect the dea, (based on some of what I hesitate to call my reporting), has some more to say than just about Ryan haight…which is even more of a problem for Telehealth “optionality” at least with the less than serious framing brought to the issues by young and inexperienced founders like Kyle Robertson who were so excited to disrupt they forgot about the power of regulatory capture or the lack thereof😾 https://thefrontierpsychiatrists.substack.com/p/its-the-end-of-telehealth-as-we-know?s=r&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web&utm_source=direct
