9. EXPAND Telehealth



South Carolina receives good telehealth
ratings from the Cicero Institute for: modality
fairness, membership in compacts, the range
of providers who may use telehealth, and our
avoiding burdensome payment and coverage
mandates. The Palmetto State’s opportunity
in telehealth is to provide an easier path for
across state lines beyond narrow
carveouts for certain types of providers.

In 2022, the legislature created a carveout that allows social workers licensed in another state to provide behavioral health services in South Carolina. A good start, much more to do.
