Telemedicine Parity Required

On October 13, 2019, Gov. Newsom signed AB 744 into law. Effective for policies issued or renewed on or after January 1, 2021, the insurer shall pay benefits for the diagnosis, consultation, or treatment provided through telehealth on the same terms as it pays for in-person services. This includes applying the same copayments, coinsurance, deductibles, and out-of-pocket maximums.
