Minnesota Private Pay & Parity Rules

 Private Pay & Parity Rules / Posted 6 months ago by Telehealthist

Definitions
“Telemedicine” means the delivery of health care services or consultations while the patient is at an originating site and the licensed health care provider is at a distant site.

Requirements
Private payers are required to provide coverage for telemedicine in the same manner, and at the same reimbursement rate, as other services provided in-person.

Parity
A health carrier shall reimburse the distant site licensed health care provider for covered services delivered via telemedicine on the same basis and at the same rate as the health carrier would apply to those services if the services had been delivered in person by the distant site licensed health care provider.
