Vogel’s Telemedicine Legislation Advances from the Senate

HARRISBURG – With support from the Pennsylvania Senate, Sen. Elder Vogel, Jr.’s (R-47) Telemedicine legislation (Senate Bill 739) aimed at strengthening telemedicine in the commonwealth now advances to the House for consideration.

“Telemedicine has proven to be a multifaceted approach to alleviate wait times in our healthcare facilities, serve as an alternative to residents who are unable to make it to their doctor’s appointments in person, and allow for better coordination among our healthcare providers,” said Vogel. “I am pleased that my colleagues can see the value telemedicine brings to the table for Pennsylvanians and our doctors and appreciate their support for my legislation.”

Senate Bill 739 sets a base for how telemedicine will be covered by insurance companies and medical providers in Pennsylvania.
