Representative Tom Reed stopped by Penn Yan Community Health during National Health Center Week to talk about healthcare topics that have direct impacts on the community.
Reed discussed various programs including protecting the 340B Federal Drug Pricing Program to help keep medicine affordable to residents.
He discussed the need for meeting an increased demand for services and the need for facilities to have more space.
The passing of the Telehealth CONNECT Act was also discussed after it was brought back in front of Congress. This bill would allow medical providers to continue their use of telehealth technology, especially for rural communities.
