This bill would provide that an FQHC or RHC “visit” includes an encounter between an FQHC or RHC patient and a health care provider using telehealth by synchronous interaction or asynchronous store and forward. The bill would specify that an FQHC or RHC is not precluded from establishing a patient who is located within the FQHC’s or RHC’s federal designated service area through synchronous interaction or asynchronous store and forward as of the date of service if specified requirements are met.
