AB 2007: Medi-Cal: Federally Qualified Health Center: Rural Health Clinic: Telehealth (2019 - 2020)

Summary: 

This bill will improve access to care through telehealth by clarifying that in addition to providing services through telehealth, community health centers can establish a patient through real-time or store-and-forward telehealth services in community settings as long as health center staff are at the community sites and that the community site is within health center’s service area and the site has been designated as a licensed physical clinic or intermittent site of the health center. This simple clarification will increase access to vital and cost-effective health care services to thousands of patients in marginalized communities across California.
