Delivering Health-care Services Through Telemedicine


Current law states that in-person contact between a health-care provider or mental health-care provider and a patient is not required under the state's medicaid program for services delivered through telemedicine that are otherwise eligible for reimbursement under medicaid. The act requires the department of health care policy and financing to promulgate rules specifically relating to entities that deliver health-care or mental health-care services exclusively or predominately through telemedicine.(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
