Attorneys Nathaniel Lacktman and Richard Werblow were quoted in an Inside Counsel article, “Telemedicine Faces the Employee/Not an Employee Diagnosis,” on July 13, 2015. The article discusses the questions surrounding the classification of telemedicine workers as employees or independent contractors. Lacktman and Werblow recommends using the Internal Revenue Service’s 20-factor test and said, “When preparing a standard physician telehealth agreement for an independent contractor arrangement, be certain the terms of that agreement actually reflect the characteristics of independent contractors.”
