Lacktman Quoted on Telemedicine Regulations

21 August 2015 Politico News


Partner Nathaniel Lacktman was mentioned in a Politico article, “Texas, Alabama Respond Differently to SCOTUS Case,” on August 21, 2015. The article discussed Alabama’s decision to scrap its telemedicine rules to avoid antitrust violations, which required an in-person visit before a doctor could treat a patient via telemedicine. The piece noted that while there are similarities between Alabama’s and Texas’ regulations, it doesn’t seem likely Texas will follow suit. Lacktman weighed in and said Alabama’s policy of granting waivers to some companies and not others may have jeopardized its anti-competitive status, while Texas has no such policy.
