Malpractice insurance can vary significantly between insurance companies and specialties, so it’s hard to say definitively whether your insurance company will cover your telehealth practice or not. Many insurance companies do cover it by now, though some are slower on the uptake than others.
But with telehealth being as prevalent, understood, and asked for by patients, how are some insurance companies still not offering this type of coverage? Not all insurance companies understand telehealth, even though the physicians and patients who want to implement it do. It’s new; it’s different. It’s not something all insurance companies have seen yet. And we all know that people often fear what they don’t understand.
