    ASHA Resources

    Jeff Regan, director, Government Affairs and Public Policy: ASHA is actively engaged with Congress about the importance of expanded access to telepractice. As you may know, we currently have a Take Action link asking our ASHA members to express support for H.R. 4932/S. 2741, the Creating Opportunities Now for Necessary and Effective Care Technologies (CONNECT) for Health Act of 2019. Given the pandemic of COVID-19 and the rapidly evolving health care policy landscape, this Action Alert is currently being modified in time for Virtual Advocacy Day on Monday, March 23, to reflect the urgent need for our services to be covered by Medicare. If you have any additional policy-related questions with respect to COVID-19, please contact Jeff Regan, ASHA's Director of Government Affairs and Public Policy, at jregan@asha.org.


    Billing, Reimbursement, and Administrative Notes:

    Effective March 31, 2021, MassHealth published the following Provider Bulletins related to Therapist Services, which provides an extension to the provider bulletins issued in January 2021.
