2024 SC Telehealth & Telemedicine Modernization Act

On March 11, 2024, South Carolina’s Governor signed the Telehealth and Telemedicine Modernization Act into law. The legislation was a product of multiple years of collaboration between telehealth champions, payers, and legislators, and outlines two main objectives: (1) to introduce a new definition of ‘Telehealth’ in statute, inclusive of non-MD health care practitioners, and (2) to facilitate greater access to certain controlled substances via telehealth while maintaining important safeguards through the modernization of tele-prescribing language. These changes were enacted upon signature of the Governor.
