‘‘Telemedicine,’’ including ‘‘telehealth,’’ means the delivery of healthcare services or consultations while the patient is at an originating site and the healthcare provider is at a distant site.

Requirements
Insurers cannot exclude an otherwise covered healthcare service from coverage solely because such service is provided through telemedicine, rather than in-person contact, or based upon the lack of a commercial office for the practice of medicine, when such service is delivered by a healthcare provider.

Parity
Payment can be limited to only services that are medically necessary, subject to the terms and conditions of the covered individual’s health benefits plan.
