LIBRE Initiative Virginia
Virginia is a leader in biotechnology and life-enhancing breakthroughs. The LIBRE Initiative-VA is committed to ensuring that more and more Virginians – including our growing Latino community – has access to these innovations in healthcare.
By removing unnecessary barriers, Latinos in Virginia will have increased access to quality healthcare.
Telemedicine & Reimbursement Reform
The LIBRE Initiative will work with lawmakers to remove regulations that prevent health care providers from offering innovative telemedicine services.
For example, EMTs would be able to provide certain on-site services and be reimbursed for providing health care to patients. We will support legislation that allows Virginians to access telemedicine services across state lines.
Certificate of Public Need:
LIBRE will work with policymakers to reform antiquated Certificate of Need laws that require government approval to provide health care services to low-income communities.
