The American Telemedicine Association (ATA) today announced its appreciation to U.S. Sens. Thad Cochran (R-MS) and Roger Wicker (R-MS) for their efforts to push for improvements in telemedicine coverage under Medicare, Medicaid and Federal Communications Commission programs.

Sens. Cochran and Wicker, both Mississippi Republicans, introduced the Telehealth Enhancement Act as S. 2662, a companion bill to a House version, H.R. 3306, introduced by Rep. Gregg Harper (R-MS) which already has 20 bipartisan co-sponsors.
