Coalition Letter Opposing SB 724/HB 1726/SB 1043: Telehealth Payment Parity Mandates

Mandatory payment parity for telehealth denies families the enormous savings telehealth offers by mandating insurers pay artificially higher prices for these essential services. One of the primary advantages of telehealth is that it is a cheaper, more affordable option than an office visit.

Texas already has a strong supply and demand for telehealth services that allows for competitive negotiated private market rates. Payment parity mandates tie telehealth services to more expensive services, thus creating an artificial floor and higher negotiated payments than would occur without the mandate.
