Malpractice coverage


Just like every state has different medical insurance policies, every state also has its own malpractice insurance policies and vendors. Malpractice insurance vendors may or may not cover all categories of telemedicine, care models, and specialties. The provider or telemedicine provider must check with the malpractice insurance company to see what they cover. The best telemedicine vendors will check with the top malpractice insurance providers in the state ahead of time and already have this information for potential customers. That said, even if malpractice insurance does not cover certain care models, a large enough practice could self-insure for telemedicine visits. In addition, some telemedicine providers are offering their own telemedicine malpractice insurance for providers using their products. So far, telemedicine has had very few reported malpractice cases.
