New York is Paving the Way for Telemedicine, Here's How:

-New York rang in the New Year by becoming the 22nd state to enact a telemedicine commercial reimbursement statute.
-The law requires commercial insurers to cover services provided via telemedicine and telehealth and also contains protections for patients by not allowing deductibles, co-insurance or other conditions for coverage of telemedicine that differ from those conditions applicable to in-person services
Nationwide, state legislatures are enacting laws stating that commercial health insurance companies must cover medical services provided via telemedicine to the same extent they cover medical services provided in-person. Currently, 22 states plus the District of Columbia have enacted these telemedicine commercial insurance laws, with legislation under discussion or development in at least a dozen more states.
