|Hold the Phone! Washington Adopts Telemedicine Parity Law|
Davis Wright Tremaine LLP
Apr. 30, 2015
"Washington is the 24th state to adopt a full or partial telemedicine parity law.... [T]he new law requires parity in coverage, but does not mandate parity in payment. In other words, the payment for the same covered service may vary when furnished virtually versus in-person. Additionally, the Parity Law defines telemedicine narrowly, excluding telephone, email or other modes of communication that do not include a video component."
