Partner Nathaniel Lacktman was quoted in a Bloomberg BNA Health Law Reporter article, “Online Eye-Test Company Sues State, Says Licensing Law Violates S.C. Constitution,” on November 3, 2016. The article discussed telemedicine provider Opternative’s challenge against a South Carolina law that forbids the use of automated eye tests for renewing corrective lens prescriptions.

Lacktman said the suit is another example in a wave of telehealth providers pushing back against restrictive state laws and rules. He was quoted saying, “I respect the efforts of telehealth companies like Opternative to continue to advocate for patient’s rights to enjoy convenient, accessible healthcare. Ideally, state laws and regulations should strike the right balance between ensuring patient safety and promoting innovation and efficiencies in the way healthcare is delivered.”
