Can I get reimbursed for telehealth in my state?
No two states have the same telehealth laws and regulations. That can make it difficult to wade through the waters of reimbursement policy.
Thankfully the Center for Connected Health Policy keeps a guide to current state policies. Highlights include:
- 49 states and D.C. provide Medicaid reimbursement for live video.
- 13 states allow the patient’s home to act as an originating site.
- 24 states are part of the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact to help providers serve patients in multiple states.
- 39 states have laws that govern private payer reimbursement.
