Telemedicine Coverage


On March 29, 2018, Gov. Reynolds signed HF 2305 into law, creating Acts Chapter 1055. This law requires insurers to cover telehealth services to the same extent as comparable services not offered by telehealth. Specifically, a policy, contract or plan providing for third-party payment or prepayment of health or medical expenses shall not discriminate between coverage benefits for health care services that are provided in person and the same health care services that are delivered through telehealth. This law is effective in Iowa on or after Jan. 1, 2019.
