Industry stakeholders are applauding Medicare's step toward expanding tele-health coverage with its proposed update to the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule for 2015.  California politicians have also seen the light…The governor recently signed a bill that purports to make tele-health easier for rural patients to use.
