- types of state licensure, exceptions, and how licensure laws apply in particular practice situations;
- telehealth regulatory requirements;
- telehealth practice and communication models;
- payment and reimbursement considerations, including telehealth payment and reimbursement rules under Medicare and Medicaid programs;
- emerging state laws known as telehealth commercial insurance and payment parity statutes;
- medical staff credentialing;
- ethics and liability issues;
- fraud and abuse compliance;
- corporate practice of medicine prohibitions;
- privacy and security issues; and
- mobile health technology.
This book examines how the law impacts all manner of telehealth relationships. We trust you will find this book useful in developing your understanding of the complex rules surrounding this method of health care delivery.
