About This Issue

The New York City- Southern New York Chapter working as part of the New York MS Coalition Action Network (NY MS CAN) is working to get telemedicine services available in New York. There is legislation, (S4337A/ A6972A) which will require insurance companies to cover services provided through telemedicine if the same services are covered if provided during an in person visit. Legislation (S.4023A./ A.3330A) will allocate funds for New York State to research and develop a telemedicine program. Call your NY State Senator and NY Assembly Member and ask them to support the development of telemedicine in NY.
