Foley & Lardner LLP Partner Thomas (T.J.) Ferrante is quoted in the Kaiser Health News article, “Digital Mental Health Companies Draw Scrutiny and Growing Concerns,” about the legal difficulties mental health telemedicine companies face, particularly as they relate to prescription protocols and advertising.

Ferrante, who represents online health care companies, describes the recent federal investigation into one company for possible violations of the Controlled Substances Act, as “a wake-up call to everyone in the industry. It is a reminder that health care is a highly regulated space.”

The article also ran in the Los Angeles Times, Fierce Biotech, WebMD, and other outlets.
