LD 757 – MaineStatus: In Process
Year Introduced: 2023
This bill amends the law governing MaineCare services delivered through telehealth to change the rule-making authority of the Department of Health and Human Services, providing that qualifying criteria for telemonitoring services include documentation in a patient’s medical record that the patient may be hospitalized or admitted or readmitted to an emergency room at the discretion of the patient’s health care provider. It also conditions MaineCare coverage for telemonitoring services on the intention to collect a patient’s health-related data to assist in monitoring and assessing the patient’s health status, telemonitoring’s being medically necessary, the patient’s capacity to participate in telemonitoring and the patient’s having a suitable residence for telemonitoring.
