Mississippi emerges as a leader in telemedicine

Mississippi scored a “B” on the American Telemedicine Association’s new report card for state reimbursement policy. The state actually dropped from an “A” last year due to changes in Medicaid policy, but is still considered a pace-setter in telemedicine. As we reported in February, Mississippi ” has emerged as a leader in policy and implementation of telehealth that can help address major barriers of access in the rural state.”
