NARHC Telehealth Update

The National Association of Rural Health Clinics (NARHC) is pursuing changes at the federal level to allow RHCs to be distant sites for telehealth visits. Medicare’s telehealth regulations define acceptable originating sites (where the patient is located) and distant sites (where the treating provider is located). Currently, RHCs can only be the originating site for a telehealth encounter. NARHC believes there are great opportunities for RHCs to use telehealth as distant sites in order to share resources. For example, access to mental health services is lacking in many rural areas. RHCs in smaller communities may not have enough patients to justify hiring a full-time mental health profession
