Dr. Ellimoottil to Testify at U.S. Senate Finance Hearing

On November 14, Dr. Chad Ellimoottil, Medical Director for Telehealth and Associate Professor of Urology, will be testifying at a U.S. Senate subcommittee hearing titled "Ensuring Medicare Beneficiary Access: A Path to Telehealth Permanency."

The purpose of this hearing is to discuss whether Medicare's telehealth expansion should become permanent, as it is currently scheduled to end on December 31, 2024, without congressional action. During the hearing, Dr. Ellimoottil will present his research along with that of others to advocate for the permanency of telehealth services, including audio-only telehealth (phone calls).
