Partner Nathaniel Lacktman was quoted in a Modern Healthcare article, “Virtual Reality: More Insurers are Embracing Telehealth,” on February 20, 2016. The article discussed the increasing amount of insurers turning to telehealth services to keep people out of expensive health care settings. Lacktman was quoted saying, “[Insurers have] begun to see the financial value in making [telemedicine] offerings available.” He also spoke to the varying state statutes and said that while they broadly mandate commercial insurers to pay for telehealth services, some stipulate specific criteria only.
