(Olympia, WA)  --  Bills being considered in committee aim to expand electronic access to medical care in Washington.  A Senate "telemedicine" bill would permit doctors to be reimbursed for consulting with patients at their homes over the Internet.  A House measure would allow easier licensing of out-of-state doctors, which would allow Washington residents to consult with doctors in at least 12 other states.  "The Olympian" reports the bills, if they pass, would build on a law that will require insurance companies to pay for some online consultations in 2017.
