Telehealth Services Can’t Be Excluded

On April 27, 2017, Gov. Ricketts signed LB 92 into law. This law prohibits insurers from excluding health-care services that are provided through telehealth and not in person. The law also purports to impose this requirement on self-funded plans (to the extent not preempted by federal law). This law does not, however, apply to any plan that provides coverage for a specified disease or other limited-benefit coverage.

LB 92 is effective on Aug. 31, 2017.
