Telehealth Guidance

On March 25, 2020, the Department of Financial Regulation issued Emergency Rule H-2020-02-E, seeking to expand patients’ access to and providers’ reimbursement of telehealth services. Specifically, the rule requires health insurance plan and carriers to cover telehealth services to the same extent that they would cover them if they were provided in person. Additionally, patient’s must be able to access as many telehealth services as they could in-person services, and the services must be offered at the same cost-sharing levels.

While insurers will have to comply with this guidance, employers should familiarize themselves with the additional telehealth benefits provided.
