New Hampshire passes law to expand telemedicine services

New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu signed a new bill into law that aims to increase Medicaid patients' access to telemedicine services, according to New Hampshire Public Radio.

Under the new law, primary care physicians and pediatricians will be added to the state's list of physicians that can bill Medicaid for telemedicine-based appointments.

Limited specialists were able to bill Medicaid for reimbursement for telemedicine visits prior to the new law.
