Return to Videos

Video Transcript

Kevin: Hi, I'm Kevin Little. This total health all video primer discusses several telemedicine pointers. Both federal and state rules govern the provision of telemedicine. Your healthcare lawyer can help you identify what federal or state rules may be implicated by your healthcare business practices. Each state has its own set of rules governing telemedicine. Those are generally found in state medical board pronouncements, insurance codes, and Medicaid rules. It's important, therefore to identify which laws or rules may be in play based upon your telemedicine issue, and conduct proper research of the applicable legal authority. Applicable rules may require the patient provide written informed consent for telehealth visits. Just as with the office context of providing care, be sure informed consent is obtained before providing any telemedicine services.
