  • Coverage of and Payment for Telemedicine- Report 7 Of The Council On Medical Service

    With a growing number of services being provided via telemedicine technologies, there is a need for a set of safeguards and standards in AMA policy to support the appropriate coverage of and payment for telemedicine services. In this report, the Council recommends a set of principles to ensure the appropriate coverage of and payment for telemedicine services. These principles aim to support future innovation in the use of telemedicine, while ensuring patient safety, quality of care and the privacy of patient information, as well as protecting the patient-physician relationship and promoting improved care coordination and communication with medical homes. Before physicians provide any telemedicine service, they should verify that their medical liability insurance policy covers telemedicine services, including telemedicine services provided across state lines if applicable.
