What is the difference between the telemedicine technology program offered by our agency and the State Telehealth Program?

Telemedicine Technology allows a nurse to connect via a secure web camera to a medical doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant. This falls under telemedicine as proved by State Law.  A claim for a telemedicine visit billed by an in-network provider will pay the same as a primary health visit, subject to the applicable PCP copay.

 

If an agency has an arrangement with a hospital for a nurse to physician telemedicine visit it is not the same as our vendor telehealth program.  The $15.00 copay is a contracted  rate specific to our telehealth program, BCBS (Physician Now) and Cigna  (MDLive).  For programs other than Physician Now and MD Live the  $15.00 copay will not apply
