All contracts (Health Care Service Organizations and policies) must provide coverage for specified health care services that are provided through telemedicine if the health care service would be covered were it provided through in-person consultation between the subscriber and a health care provider and provided to an subscriber receiving the service in Arizona.

No parity. Requirement for telehealth coverage only applies when certain conditions are met.
