Ohio Private Pay & Parity Rules

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

Definitions
“Telemedicine services” means a mode of providing health care services through synchronous or asynchronous information and communication technology by a health care professional, within the professional’s scope of practice, who is located at a site other than the site where the recipient is located.

Requirements
A health benefit plan must provide coverage for telemedicine services on the same basis and to the same extent that the plan provides coverage for in-person health care services. Plans cannot exclude coverage for a service solely because it is provided as a telemedicine service.
