Telehealth use soared early in the COVID-19 pandemic. While it has since diminished, it is still being used significantly more than in pre-pandemic times. Last week Congress extended coverage for certain telehealth services in Medicare for 151 days after the pandemic-era public health emergency comes to an end, but beyond that extension, the future of telehealth services in Medicare and more broadly remains uncertain.

Expert panelists with diverse perspectives will join series moderator Larry Levitt in a 45-minute discussion exploring future directions for telehealth policy, including challenges facing its expanded use, impact on patient care and effects on the U.S. healthcare system.

This is the first in KFF’s new virtual conversation series, The Health Wonk Shop, which will dive into timely health policy issues with experts for a deeper discussion beyond the news headlines, taking questions from viewers over Zoom.
