Partner Nate Lacktman was quoted in an mHealth Intelligence article, “National Telehealth Survey Sees Surge in Commercial Payer Coverage,” about the findings of Foley’s third state-by-state survey of telehealth coverage.

Lacktman said the findings, which show that 42 states and the District of Columbia now have reimbursement guidelines for commercial payers on the books, is a “good thing” and represents “real progress” over the past five years. “Unfortunately, the quality and efficacy of these laws varies significantly from state to state,” he said. “And while telehealth coverage has widely expanded, the same cannot be said for reimbursement/payment parity.”
