Telehealth expansion could become permanent under NH bill

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) The temporary expansion of telehealth services during the coronavirus pandemic would become permanent under a bill being considered by New Hampshire lawmakers.

A Senate committee recommended passage Thursday of a bill that would make permanent Gov. Chris Sununu’s emergency order allowing all health care providers to offer services via phone and video and required insurers to cover them.

Meanwhile, the task force on reopening the state's economy heard from brides, grooms and wedding event industry officials pleading for clarity on whether they can go ahead with their plans.
