The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has announced a new federal rule that will allow VA health-care providers to administer care to veterans using telehealth, or virtual technology, regardless of where in the United States the provider or Veteran is located, including when care will occur across state lines or outside a VA facility. Previously, it was unclear whether VA providers could furnish care to veterans in other states through telehealth. This new rule is critical to VA's 'Anywhere to Anywhere' initiative. The rule will especially benefit veterans living in rural areas. To learn more, visit VA's Office of Connected Care.
