Take Action! Tell Your Senators to Support the FITT Act
April 12, 2013 04:13 PM
Senators Thune (R-SD) and Klobuchar (D-MN) recently reintroduced the FITT Act –S. 596. This bipartisan bill seeks to expand the use of telehealth technology under Medicare to reduce hospital re-admissions in rural and underserved communities across the country. S. 596 would create pilot programs to provide incentives for home health agencies to use remote patient monitoring (RPM) technology to better monitor Medicare beneficiaries, improve health outcomes, and reduce Medicare expenditures.
NAHC strongly supports the FITT Act, and urges all of its members to contact their senators and ask them to become cosponsors.
