The ACCESS Act would authorize $50 million in emergency funding from the Department Health and Human Services’ Telehealth Resource Center to assist nursing facilities in expanding their use of telehealth services. It also establishes a grant program to allow nursing homes to facilitate “virtual visits” between residents and their loved ones during the pandemic.

Elise for Congress will release a new Result each day through the November 3rd election to highlight the campaign’s laser focus on Real Results for the North Country.
