Telehealth Waiver Extension in Omnibus Spending Bill

In early March, Congress passed an omnibus spending bill to fund the government for fiscal year 2022. Included in the bill are extensions for telehealth waivers as they currently exist under the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE). The extension will run through December 31, 2022. Prior to the bill’s passage, the waivers that enable audio-only visits and the elimination on site of service restrictions, among others, had to be reauthorized every 90 days with a renewal of the PHE declaration. The AUA repeatedly met congressional staff to advocate for a longer authorization for waivers to invite greater investment in telehealth and provide stability for providers and patients alike.
