Use of Telehealth to Respond to COVID-19


On March 22, 2020, Department of Banking and Insurance Commissioner Caride issued Bulletin No. 20-07, providing guidance to insurers regarding the use of telehealth to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Among other directives, the bulletin directs carriers to review their telehealth networks, cover telehealth without cost sharing and impose no more restrictive requirements on telehealth than are imposed on in-person treatment. Although this guidance is directed towards insurers, plan sponsors should familiarize themselves with how telehealth will be offered under plans offered in New Jersey.
