from mHealth Intelligence
With news that the Medicare Diabetes Prevention Program isn’t drawing a crowd, lawmakers are urging federal officials to add telehealth to the program. A group of 19 senators has written a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Administrator Seem Verma, asking them to make virtual care part of a Medicare-backed service that aims to improve health and wellness for roughly 84 Americans at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. And they’re arguing that connected health could turn the program around.
