LATEST SENATOR KING
BRUNSWICK, ME – Today, U.S. Senator Angus King (I-Maine) announced his support for the Creating Opportunities Now for Necessary and Effective Care Technologies (CONNECT) for Health Act. This bipartisan legislation would expand telehealth services in Medicare, improve care outcomes, make it easier for patients to connect with their health care providers, and help cut costs for patients and providers.
“Telehealth has the potential to revolutionize the way Maine people, especially those who live in rural areas, access their health services,” said Senator King. “These technologies can help residents of rural communities access services in a more efficient and cost-effective way, and allow seniors to thrive in place by making the healthcare they need more accessible. Congress should be doing everything possible to help increase the reach of telehealth technologies, and this bill would be a strong step towards the future of our healthcare economy.”
