The COVID-19 public health emergency has shown the need to increase access to health services through telehealth, including for Medicaid beneficiaries. A year into the pandemic, millions of people have accessed services via telehealth. The need and desire for telehealth will persist after the pandemic ends, particularly for individuals seeking time-sensitive reproductive and sexual health care. In this webinar, presenters will explain how Medicaid covers reproductive health services delivered through telehealth - including family planning, pregnancy, and abortion. Participants will learn the steps states have taken to expand access to reproductive health services via telehealth as well as understand the importance of placing protections for low-income and underserved communities.
