President Trump's Executive Order on Medicare includes directives to increase telehealth adoption in Medicare Advantage plans and improve the process for permitting and covering new mHealth tools and services.


President Donald Trump is ordering Medicare to adopt more telehealth programs and pave the way for new technologies, including mHealth tools and services.

In a scheduled visit to a Florida retirement community on Thursday, the President signed an Executive Order that, among other things, aims to give the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services more leeway to use connected health services, particularly in Medicare Advantage programs.

Specifically, the order calls on the Secretary of Health and Human Services to, within a year, “propose a regulation to provide beneficiaries with improved access to providers and plans by adjusting network adequacy requirements for MA plans to account for … “the enhanced access to health outcomes made possible through telehealth services or other innovative technologies.”
