Dear Senators Daines and Cortez Masto,

On behalf of the 2.2 million members of the Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC), I write in support of your legislation, the Telehealth Expansion Act of 2023, S. 1001. This legislation will allow seniors to save time and money while ensuring their long-term health.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the expansion of telehealth options became a critical resource for our members as an organization representing adults aged 50 plus. During the midst of uncertain world events, many seniors found themselves canceling important in-person doctor appointments that served to diagnose or prevent disease. The telehealth options made available during the pandemic helped provide seniors the opportunity to stay committed to their health while feeling safe within their homes. These services have not only been convenient for our members but also cost-effective.

Unfortunately, the telehealth services included in the CARES Act and extension package are set to expire next year. This would revoke the accessible option of telehealth services. This would be a disservice to the millions of Americans with high deductible health plans (HDHP) and health savings accounts (HSA). Passage of the Telehealth Expansion Act would permanently allow coverage of telehealth for individuals with HDHP and HSA’s.

AMAC supports the bipartisan efforts in the Telehealth Expansion Act. Telehealth is effective and safe and should be an option for all Americans in the future. The expansion of telehealth has become the new normal our members have become accustomed to and are confident in using. We appreciate the timely introduction of this legislation.
