More on Health Care
SALINA, KS – On Thursday, U.S. Congressman Roger Marshall, M.D., helped welcome two truckloads of much needed Personal Protection Equipment to Kansas. These supplies, which include face masks, gloves, and gowns, will be much needed should the COVID-19 infection rate increase in Kansas. This equipment is needed to protect nurses, doctors, respiratory therapists, and other medical staff. These supplies are now available as President Trump has declared a national emergency.
SALINA, KS – This week, the Trump administration announced an expansion of telehealth benefits for America’s seniors during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. These changes will allow America’s seniors greater flexibility to communicate with their health care provider without needing to travel to an office. These added benefits will also relieve stress on providers, allowing them to offer services remotely so emergency rooms and doctor’s offices are available for urgent cases.
