Lacktman Quoted on Current Telemedicine Payment Issues

11 April 2017 Politico News
Partner Nate Lacktman was quoted in a Politico morning news roundup section titled “Trouble with Telemedicine Payments,” covering the troubles he’s seen from hospital systems about payment for telemedicine services.

In response to the growing need of non-face-to-face services that lack clear coverage, Lacktman suggests that hospital systems explore “capitated add-on payments [for the services] … that way, the provider is incentivized to use these e-consults as much as possible, without skewing the payer’s utilization risk, and without the provider risking cannibalizing its own in-person covered visits in lieu of these e-consults.”
