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
