Lacktman Comments on Growing Use of Telemedicine in South Florida

17 November 2017 South Florida Business Journal News
Partner Nate Lacktman is quoted in a South Florida Business Journal article, “South Florida hospitals embrace telemedicine,” about the prospects for passage of a law that would cover telemedicine services in the state.

Lacktman said Florida is one of only 18 states that does not have a telehealth commercial insurance law, although that may change with next year’s legislative session, which will include a review of a report that touts the benefits of telemedicine and outlines the benefits of requiring additional coverage for the service.

“The report shows there’s widespread enthusiasm in telemedicine, and Florida is uniquely poised to take advantage of the power that technology offers,” he said.
