Telemedicine Obligations

On June 8, 2021, the Commissioner of Insurance issued Bulletin No. B-0015-21 to all health benefit issuers in the state. The bulletin reminds issuers that state law requires them to offer telemedicine options for covered services, including mental health services. Those options must be offered on the same basis and to the same extent that the plan provides coverage for the service or procedure in an in-person setting.

Employers with plans issued in Texas should be aware of this requirement.
